  It was a great day for hunting rocks!
A friend of AMLS lives near a rock quarry where river rocks called "Brookwood Stone" are found,  She graciously invited us to spend the afternoon hunting for these pretty rocks.
 
 

Leaving the house & heading for the ponds.
Everyone's ready to look for rocks!
 

Lots of nice rocks along the road, too!
Just a short walk to the pond...

Joanne is wishing Sam had come along to help her carry all these rocks!  Or the refrigerator...

Man-made lakes & lots of rocks!Man-made lakes & lots of rocks!
The lakes on the property are man-made. The dirt from the excavation is rich in river rock.
It was an easy rock hunt; we were limited only by the size of our buckets!
