Giving The Rock Back To The Place It Came From
by Reviewer Rob
I’ve collected rocks in the past but lately have been in the mood to return some of them to the places I got them from.
(Below’s post material is from yesterday.)
I took this strange rock back to the area I found it today. It’s a sandstone half-orb type formation that solidified around a crustacean, the fossilized remains of which are visible in its center if you look closely. I had picked it up from the sandy beach at the bottom if the cliffs just north of the point – almost directly below where these pictures were taken, actually – at Blacks Beach one Spring day in 2011 when I brought an art model who had came visiting me for work from out of state. She wanted to see the famous San Diego nude beach at Blacks there.
I didn’t hike all the way down to the sand this day just to return it though. I simply tossed it down onto the hillside beneath where this photo was taken; nature and erosion will have to finish the job. I’m very busy!
Here’s some amazing cellphone coverage of the ceremonial return of the sandstone fossil rock:
