From the archives…all on Whidbey Island, WA – all of Nature’s bounty…

There is a stretch of beach along Admiralty Bay on Whidbey Island where odd shaped stones are found. But they’re not stones, really. More like baked clay from the cliffside. Actually they are called concretions – “a hard, compact mass of matter formed by the precipitation of mineral cement within the spaces between particles.” – Wikipedia. Beach walkers find them and display them on a driftwood log or a boulder – like this one. They are too miraculous to take from the site (though they are…and I have! created a little patio in front of an Adirondack chair in my backyard once…then returned them all to the beach several months later). This community collection grew over one summer. Many shaped like fried eggs! Click on ‘concretion’ in the tags below to see other photos of them on my site.ย  ย PROLIFIC
