Rock Texture on the Shore

Some of the rocks along the shore in Larrabee State Park had worn in to interesting shapes under the relentless pressure of the sea.  The coastal rocks are all shaped by the wave action but I thought these looked a little different to normal.  I wonder whether the rocks are a softer type than I am more familiar with because the curves and cracks seemed to be a lot smoother than is usual.  Some of the rocks also had pitting in them, presumably from the eddies in the water flowing across them gradually eroding deeper into the surface of the rock.
