some of the treasures that i culled from two walks on moonstone beach. only two walks - i could have walked forever there! but time was limited, and we had one sunset and one foggy morning. these smooth pebbles, i've since found out, are jade, moonstone agate, and other semi-precious stones. i was amazed by the variety of color and texture to be found...sheer gatherer's heaven - also some wonderful twisty vine root things that look like nests, in a way.
