I promised everyone that I would notify you when the first shoreline rocks are exposed. Yesterday, we hiked from Sable Lake all the way across the dunes and back. When we approached the bluff -- there they were. As already reported, the icebergs have been taking a beating. In town at Agate Beach, there is still ice on shore. However, there are spots wherein the ice is completely gone from shore. The spot in the picture is probably a mile from Sable Creek. I hear that there are other spots, too, if you can get there. The roads are still not opened up so that is a challenge. Of coucrse, the area in the photo is part of the national park, so it is not legal for rockhounding. It looks like spring is finally getting here, though.
