Black & white impressions from a stop at the “Dry Lagoon” of Humboldt Lagoons State Park, and a walk at the beach. The beach has coarse, dark sand, sometimes large and in the transition between round and washed pebbles and sand, slowly being ground by the never resting forces of wind and tides.
People skim the beach for “Ocean Agates” – yellow-orange, half translucent little gemstones with a white patina. As gems they do not hold any “real” value, but finding and collecting them has become a pastime for many locals and visitors – which is value enough, I think. What could be better than spending time at the beach, walking bare-footed through the coarse, crunchy sand, looking for something just for the sake of finding it? I guess we should all do this more often… and especially our politicians and policymakers…
