We walk down to the Spit almost every day. There are rocks of all sizes and lots of drift wood on the beach. The sand on the beach is medium brown to black and the rocks are all different colors.
The Spit is on Refuge property so there is absolutely no removal of any rocks, driftwood, etc. But, if you’re willing to walk West a little bit, you come to a cliff area that is part of the county park. You’ll find the same kinds of rocks and the same beautiful driftwood and you can pick up a few treasures and put them in your pocket.
I have a hard time limiting myself to just a few rocks. I try to just get colors I don’t already have.
I’ve found a few more rocks since I took this picture but this will give you an idea of the beautiful colors to be found.
Even with the cold rainy weather we’ve had, we’re getting out and exploring every day. We brought a great book with us that is very helpful in finding good places for birds and other interesting things.
This is probably the most interesting bit of driftwood I’ve ever found. It looks great on the wall!
