|Oregon Coast Notes - News|
Weather was great for a trip to the beach or fishing today. It was sprinkling as we left but once we got down to the beach it was dry and warm. There were so many fishing boats out today and people on the beach with their families and their dogs great fun for everyone.
We just got home from Seal Rock with this beautiful collection of stones for the kids. They are anxiously awaiting their new collection to get their rock polishers started again.
The beaches were so busy with cars all over the place at all of the better known collecting spots. We spent about 4 hours actually laying in the gravel talking and just picking up sea (rarely seen intact on our rocky coastline) shells, sea glass plus many colorful Jaspers and Agates one after another as we visited together with our friend Scott.
There must have been about 12 other folks getting down in the gravel too just sitting there with pebbles all around them. We found the biggest one in the photo as we were heading home it weighs in at over 1¼ pounds and 4 inches across - - >
Ted's 4" Oregon Agate Crafted into a Night Light
Oregon Coast Fossil
This fossil was found on Oregon's central coast.
A. shows the side view to be about 5" long.
The rear is 3" wide, with some really usual suture like or worm tracks.
What do you think this is?
Agatized Marine Gastropods
Would you have recognized the white specimen as being an agatized snail?
Many folks do not look before tossing their finds into the rock polisher.
The top specimen was found by Frank and the white one was found by Scott both are beachcomber residents of Agate Beach.
Fancy Jaspers and Agate
It is getting rather late in the season but these beauties were found in mid-June.
All of these are nice and sizable, the amber colored one on the lower left in a Sard Agate the others are all Fancy Jaspers.
Congratulations to our Toledo resident beachcomber Scott on these beautiful finds.
Present Day Sharks Tooth Found
Congratulations to Ken of Neotsu Oregon, who just discovered this rare find of a present day 1¾" Great White Sharks Tooth, here on the Central Oregon Coast.
The serrations have been worn down indicating that it has been in the sand for quite some time, but still a spectacular find.
