I was raised in Michigan, where you couldn't put a shovel in the ground without hitting a rock or ten. Mostly conglomerates of granite, limestone, slate and quartz left by glaciers after the last ice-age. From there I moved to Florida, where there are no rocks, a few limestone formations but they are in odd out of the way places, most of the state is a gigantic sandbar waiting to be washed back into the sea.
Last month we visited the Washington Coast, I am always taken by rocks and ocean. The rocks washed and ground flat and smooth by econs of ocean action. Yes, I brought home a small bag of rocks.
What are the rocks like where you live?
