The coast around Charmouth and Lyme Regis (seen in the distance) is world famous for fossils, which are easily found washed out of the cliffs and on to the beach. It is normal practice to see people holding hammers and looking closely at the stones and gravel on the beach rather than enjoying the scenery! Fossils from this stretch of coastline can be found in many museums all around the world.
The tide was out and we walked further along the coast than we had done previously, and discovered this unusual rock formation that has been weathered by the sea. What does it remind you of?
We weren't looking particularly hard but we found this imprint of an ammonite and also a belemnite.
As we headed back to the car via the heritage centre (they had a Christmas craft fair and were selling coffee and homemade cake), we looked inland where it didn't quite so blue and admired the colours of the reeds.
This week it has turned colder and we have had some frost in patches. There aren't many leaves left on the trees and it is beginning to look more like winter. We also had a lovely visit from fellow blogger Seagirl Suzie and her husband. It is always a pleasure to meet blogging friends face to face.
This was another visitor to the Bay this weekend - he came to see the Christmas tree lights being lit! How are your preparations for the event going? I have so much still to do!
Thank you as always for the lovely comments you leave, they always brighten my day!
