yep you posted correctly :-)

Ah pebble beaches - the rest of us can but dream.
But if (when) we hold a decent english sling meet, you now have the task of loading as many as you can get into a car and bringing them with you ;-)

We've got one or two slingers in your area who could help with the wheelbarrows :-)

Still learning on this not sure how it operates my grandaughter is better on the computer but I can sling better than her even though she tries very hard for a 13 year old, I have even trained the wife to collect the right sized pebbles for me.

lol - it's usually a good idea add a comment to a quote :-)

like : -
'bugger off and get your own pebbles'
or
'I drive a dump truck - how many tons do you want :-)'
;-)

At least you have beaches,
Where i was the native stone was Sandstone unless you really lucked out and found a "rose rock"

Now I'm in a more rockier part of the State and loving it, until I have to dig in the bleeping stuff.
