Coastal Crumble

Much of the coastal rock along the northern shore of California is a very low grade sandstone.
It's amazing California hasn't just disintegrated into the Pacific Ocean by now.
You can just pick away at it slowly like an uninteresting desert.
This is not a very good stone to build walls with.
There is a point where a pile of inferior stone ceases to be stone at all and becomes more like apple crumble.
