All through out the Gulf Islands, ( IN THE SALISH SEA), every where you go ashore, you are bound to find some intriguing shore lines, amazing rock formations, beautiful sculpted sand stone rocks, marked by years of salt water, splashing and dripping in the same spots….. i call these” rock lace”, as some of them are beautifully crafted by nature.
The Gulf islands consist of high ridges of erosion resistant sandstone and conglomerate, in between lies more easily eroding
shale, the conglomerate is especially evident at the shores of South Pender Island, huge conglomerate boulders line the shore, broken off from higher up, while in between , sand stone ridges and rock show the “rock lace”. I have a lot of older photos of the rock lace , from the shores near Silva bay. There, whole caves have washed out from the constant waves.
