Agates Found Today
Agates are an additional find when looking for sea glass in this area of Washington, USA.
I know that in Oregon and also other places, I'm sure, there are more agates and more variety. We have heard of "Agate Beach" in Oregon, and there are probably many other "agate beaches."
But I wanted to share what you can find in a few hours at beaches in our area as far as agates go. These were found on July 27, 2009.
As a matter of fact, I thought I had found a piece of red sea glass. But as you can see in the photo, it actually was a small red agate!
When we are looking for sea glass on the beaches near here, we pick up a LOT of other stuff, including driftwood, agates, many beach pebbles or rocks (we try to keep them under 2 inches in size), a FEW seashells, etc.
But we ALWAYS find some agates.
If you know anything about agates, we would love to hear from you, as we are uneducated about them.
