Prehistoric Bowling Balls

It’s been awhile since I’ve hiked out to the beach at Octopus Rock. I’m not even sure if that’s the right name for it, but I remember someone calling it that once. Anyways, it’s the beach along Mattole Road, just before it turns back inland on it’s way to Petrolia.

One of the thing I like about this beach is the tide pools, and particularly, the rocks you find that collect in the larger ones. Many of them develop a pattern of holes that makes them look like Barney Rubble’s bowling balls, only they’ve eroded over the millennia.
