So very worth the price! We got the “regular” bucket for our 7 year old who loves rocks and gems and all things earth science.

Rare place that offers a view into their backyard, which is a great flowing River for anyone to access and explore. Scenic route with exploratory inspiration and healthy wonder. Why visit just the shop when you can explore waterfront and kinder the true explorer spirit. Please be safe, as the rocks can be slippery when wet.
