Searching for Clay Babies

What are clay babies? They are these really neat concretion rocks that are formed on only 3 places on Earth…one of these places is Fox Island not far from where my aunt and uncle live! I spent the day with their family down in Gig Harbor hanging out, wandering around town and playing with lots of little girls. After lunch, during low tide, we we went hunting for clay babies. It was a beautiful Washington day. Just over 70 degrees and sunny and perfect for playing on the beach. Our treasures were pretty cool too!

  1. We are on Case Inlet on the Lakebay/home side, directly across from Herron Island. We have 7 or 8 long log size veins of clay running down our beach where we find dozens of clay babies. They are awesome! They are only in one area about 25 feet wide. It is sure hard to get much info on exactly how they are formed. The Fox Island Clay Babies article is the best I’ve seen, but want to know more!

I'd love to hear from you! Please leave a comment
