Fischer Creek Conservation Area

Day 7 (3/10/12)
Fischer Creek Beach
No need for snowshoes today. Eileen had to work in the morning so when she got done we were ready to celebrate one of the first sixty degree days of the season. Right before she got home our son, Nate, called to see what we were up to. We decided to check out a beach by their house which he and his wife, Rita, had found that had lots of rocks. Fischer Creek beach turned out to be everything they said. It yielded some of the best stackers we have come across so far. There was a plethora of small flat stones perfect for Eileen’s jewelry. As I have said before, it is an addiction. And like all addictions it is not just the addicts who are affected. Our son and daughter-in-law probably get tired of being drug (no pun intended) to beaches and subjected to searching for stones. But their two little dogs love it and have a blast digging in the sand and chasing the waves. In little more than an hour we had our booty of stones. It is always hard to stop. You always think the next one you find is going to be the best. After a couple of false starts we finally made our way off the beach vowing to return when we had more time.
