This Rock Hound is Getting Serious!!

It was only a matter of time until I needed to learn more about the rocks and minerals lining the Bay of Fundy shore. The Rocks & Gems publication from the Smithsonian Institute is packed with geological info from the creation of the earth’s crust to rocks, minerals and fossils around the world. It is all-encompassing but I was looking for more specific information.

Our area is well-known among rock hound circles. The annual rock and gem show is returning to Parrsboro mid-August and excitement is building.

After my Rock & Gem book purchase I wanted to dive deeper into agates. The only book I could find locally is a Firefly publication at the Fundy Geological Museum gift shop. I did my bit to support the local economy and picked up a copy today. Coffee is brewing. I can’t wait to dive deeper into the book. Touring the beach yesterday leaves me wanting for more…

Isn’t this a fabulous piece of agate we found yesterday? Interested in a guided tour? Check out my tour info on the blog’s “About” and “Guided Tours” pages. The navigation menu is in the upper right corner.

Wishing you all a fantastic day, Anna
