Put-in-Bay Rocks is a Facebook page that many Islanders know about. What you do is paint a rock, and then write on the back. You write “Go to Facebook and find the page Put-in-Bay rocks. Then take a picture of me, post it, the last re-hide.” I go up to my grandma’s house and paint rocks and hide them all over. Ever since we were old enough to hold a paintbrush grandma would let us paint rocks. My grandma told me that they have been painting rocks for seventeen years, back then Put-in-Bay Rocks wasn’t a thing. But now that it is, we have been hiding tons of rocks.
One time while hiding the rocks, I found one. Except this McKenna Stacy one was different. On the back of this one, it said Put-in-Bay Ohio rocks. My grandma and I searched it on facebook and found it! My favorite part of this painting rock idea is when I see my rock found by someone I know, or a tourist. I also love reading the comments left on the picture. It is cool getting to see who found it, and where they are from. I painted several different rocks and only one was posted, but more than one was found. I hope that people don’t take the rocks as souvenirs, then they aren’t keeping the rocks in the game.
I think that it would be really cool to see one go from Put-in-Bay to somewhere across the world. It would be awesome if this little Put-in-Bay Rocks rock thing could turn into worldwide rock hiding. It would be so much fun! It could be so cool to find a rock and it was written in a different language. (All I would have to do is find my brother Matthew and ask him what it says, he loves languages and learning about them!) Put-in-Bay Rocks is a very fun thing for Islanders and tourists. This is a great way to see how far away some people travel to get to Put-in-Bay. Put-in-Bay rocks is a fun way to get the Islanders involved in activities! When I ride around the island I look for rock hiding spots. It is so exciting going home and painting a rock and hiding it in the spot that you found earlier. It is so fun to see what rocks pop up on the facebook page. I love seeing the rocks that other people paint. All of the rocks are amazing! I think that it is awesome to see tourists bring rocks here to hide.
