A morning out collecting

So my wife has requested an iwagumi once the 25cm has run its course. Not complaining.

Given the crazy price (and lack of availability) of rocks in local shops, I decided to have a look around to see what's at the beach. Turns out there are a few varieties that look usable. Of course nothing spectacular, but for a simple Mini M sized iwagumi I'd like to do next, there were some options. I collected about 20kg of various sizes, choosing pieces with a little more character than plain smooth round stones. I'll give them a good clean-up and have a look at some layout possibilities.

I'd like to head up to the mountains too at some point. There are bound to be some nicer pieces in the mountain streams, but lugging them back will be a pain!

Do you collect your own?
