Another Kim Day At San Simeon

Today I needed another break from everything going on in my life. I had the privilege of sharing this second Kim Day of the year to date fellow members of the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. Unlike last month's excursion which ended up at San Simeon Creek Inlet after visiting other localities down the coast, today we solely visited San Simeon Creek Inlet. A strong Pacific storm had just gone through and churned up the beach, making beach-combing and rockhounding much more productive. What follows is my report in pictures.

I found this brecciated jasper with chalcedony and quartz banding cobble.

This is probably a Hearst Ranch cow (#51) who ended up in a creek during the last storm and got swept out to sea and drowned during the last storm. Photo by Kim Patrick Noyes (all rights reserved).
