Rock Hound

Collecting beach rocks is an occasional hobby of mine and yesterday it was a perfect opportunity to test out Savage's new backpack. We are lucky enough to live just a mile or so from Paradise Beach on Superior's north shore, which is an excellent place to hunt for the famous Lake Superior agates. Savage carried water bottles and a couple small geology books in his pack. By the end of the day my sister and I had collected quite a few unique rocks and added considerably to the weight Savvy was packing, but he accepted it easily and didn't seem to mind the pack at all.
I would hesitate to make him carry extra weight during the heat of summer, but the first day of April was sunny but cool and comfortable next to the big lake. We discovered many beautiful rocks on the beach but agates themselves remained elusive. Another excuse to do it all over again!
