We spent several hours a day looking for beach agates while on our trip. I have been collecting agates from beaches up and down the coast line my entire life. It has always been a hobby for all the members of my family. My dad taught us girls how to find them when we were young and then we have all taught the men in our lives. Pam finds hers and gives them away, the rest of us keep ours and pull them out for show on what we call "Bragget Night" this is when you lay out your find and show them off. We all have our own style of hunting and the results vary. The first picture is of my sisters and I on agate beach at the Patrick's Point State Park. The second picture is of the agates that James and I found on this last trip. We have collected thousands of them and have them on display in our home. The best part about looking for agates is being on the beach!
