Our 30th rocks come from our friend Karen, who picked them up at her “favorite place in the world: Cuttyhunk” Island in Massachusetts.
She writes: “Of course I couldn’t pick just one, so I’m including two “lucky rocks” (with a sediment ring that goes all around), a “pudding stone” (one that is an amalgam of different smaller rocks attached to the denser mineral; these are only found in glacial moraines where everything got jumbled together and is also why all these rocks are fairly round and smooth) and a few others that you have to get wet to appreciate their colors. Hope your “Journey” is a fantastic one. Mazel Tov & here’s to your fabulous wedding! xo, Karen
I met Karen back in 2007 when we were trying to establish “Fairfield County, Connecticut” National Novel Writing Month (NaNo) meet-ups. We’ve been friends every since.
Our 31st rocks/shells come from SachuestBeach in Middletown, RI. On July 21, my long-time friend Heather and I hit the beach. It was truly a special day—it was hot, but there was a breeze; the sky was the bluest I’d ever seen; there was no seaweed at all; best of all—the body surfing waves were PERFECT. We spent hours in the water.
Afterward, we went to get some booze (like we always do) to go to a bonfire (like we always do). On this day, I discovered my new drink: SKINNY GIRL PINA COLADAS!
