    Love all that beautiful sand! When I was growing up there were a LOT of stones on the “beach.” Ouch! It was only when the tide was out and you could walk on the flats that our little feet could enjoy the pleasures of curling our toes in the (black) sand. Hurray for Compo Beach!

      I remember the stones on the beach. A lot of them were wonderfully rounded by the elements. My parents were sling-shot shooters – that was their sport, shooting at a cowbell inside a barrel. My dad made the slingshots. We used to come to the beach in the early evening and spend a half hour loading up several buckets with nicely rounded stones about the size of a quarter, perfect for slingshots. I also remember the easy waling at low tide but there were large jellyfish there in the evening.

    Faux sand. Who is paying for it?

    • Nancy Hunter Wilson: What exactly is “faux sand”?

      • Nancy Wilson

        Sand brought in from elsewhere… not natural to the region, but helpful when beach erosion occurs. Areas of Southern California are in need of sand from the Pacific Northwest.
