GREAT TIME TO FIND AGATES

Winter time is “agate time” on Oregon’s beaches and a great time to visit Lincoln City.

Agates wash down to the ocean from rivers and streams that are forever eroding their banks. Those streams are flowing fast and high this time of year, so the agate supply is being replenished.

After they reach the ocean, the stones get rounded and polished in the rocky surf. Then winter storms drive the stones onto the beaches. Those same storms wash the beach sand away, exposing gravel beds where sharp-eyed and patient hunters might be lucky enough to spot the glassy-looking agates.

The best time to look for agates is a few hours after high tide, while the sea level is dropping. Be aware of the tides and know when to expect the water level to rise again. You don’t want to be caught out on the rocks or on some secluded beach that gets flooded at high tide.

There’s another reason why winter is a good time for agate hunting: fewer people! Beaches that get picked over in the summer are ready and waiting just for you.

There are many excellent websites with information on agate hunting. Here’s one:

Weekday visits to the beach are wonderful. You feel like you have the place to yourself. It's a great place for a run or a walk for you and your best friend. Come watch pelicans diving into the ocean for fish -- or sea lions leaping through the waves. This dog was having a great time playing in the surf.

And when your day is done and you're ready for a break, come relax at the Inn at Wecoma:
