I started hunting agates years ago one Sunday morning out on the south jetty in Bandon, Oregon. We were just getting ready to head out of town, but wanted to take one last walk on the beach. It was a beautiful sunny day with a low tide and I met a very nice school teacher that was searching for something along the waters edge. She told me all about agates, in fact she gave me one. From that moment on I was hooked and have been searching and collecting agates since.
