Agate Rocks, Agate Collecting, and Agate Beach, Oregon
Pebbles, beach glass, and agates, companions on the shore...
From the Great Lakes (Lake Superior Agates) to the beaches of Oregon, agate collecting is a growing pastime, especially of you have access to beaches like Agate Beach, Oregon.
Here are a few of the agates in their natural state that we (Lin and David) have found.
|Agate Beach actually was a community center with a post office started there in 1912 and remaining open until 1971. |
Agate Beach State Recreation Site is a state park in Lincoln County, Oregon United States, administered by the Oregon Parks and Recreation Department.
Beach access is via a tunnel under Ocean View Drive, but beach strollers usually park at the parking area edging the beach.

Love your sea glass web site. I enjoy your picture of the month and intend on winning at least once.
