photoblog image Patterned Rock

Patterned Rock

Although fossils are rare on the neighbourhood beach, rocks like this are not. The patterns are made from different colours of mud and soil mixing and hardening into stone millions of years ago. I find them endlessly fascinating.

It is a lovely thing, Mary.

Do you carry one home occasionally, and give it a place in your garden?
Mary MacADNski: I get extreme workouts carrying rocks. I have thousands. My kids are afraid of all they will have to do with them if I have a heart attack carrying tonnes of rocks.
They are really lovely, aren't they!
Mary MacADNski: I love them.
It's a great stone Mary... i have a block of cheddar cheese that looks a bit like this....petersmile
Mary MacADNski: If you are planning to eat, I recommend the cheese rather than the rock. You can lick the rocks for a bit of salt though.

This rock is probably made fun of by its friends for its terrible affliction.
Mary MacADNski: No way. They all like being unique and some are uniquer than others. They celebrate their differences as we all should do.
Wonderful stuff Mary
Mary MacADNski: Wonderful and a bit odd, I suppose.
I love the endless variety of stones you find on some beaches here...who needs diamonds?
Mary MacADNski: Absolutely! I found a blue topaz in my garden.
belle tāche et couleur de cette pierre
Mary MacADNski: La roche est naturel et un tel plaisir à trouver.
A fascinating image, when you know how this was formed - nice shot Mary!
Mary MacADNski: There is a wonderful, modern geology book about the Maritimes that I have used for a lot of research.

I would like to touch these red rocks, like you I'm endlessy fascinated by those gerological phenomena. They give a feel of eternity.
Mary MacADNski: I know exactly what you mean. Geology is a fascinating science.
I'm not surprised you find them interesting Mary, I would if I was there.
Mary MacADNski: There are thousands on the beach. Fabulous.
Simply fabulous Mary! I love it.
Mary MacADNski: They are great and a pleasure to find.
Definitely worth a pic, Mary.
Mary MacADNski: Strange hobby you might think.
Lovely combo of colours and textures here Mary.
Mary MacADNski: Thanks, Fred.
Nice... I love rocks!! Was a big collector in my youth & still am once in a while.
I thought this rock looked like a petrified Stingray... shape & marks like this one.
