Anyway Lyme Regis was our destination as Kevin loves geology and I like pebbles and the kids enjoy the beach !!! nuff said this area has it all!
...even the street lights have fossil connections, although definitely not that old!
I would like to use pebbles for my theme for my final degree year.... I find out on Wednesday how I have done this last term and also if pebbles are a "go" or whether its back to the fishing buoys for one more year!....so I took the opportunity to look at different pebbles, or in some cases cobbles as they are known in some regions. The markings on them are just so varied and wonderful, two never the same.
Lyme Regis is the haven for fossil folk and I have never seen so many people... young, old, teenagers and young families all wielding hammers and scouring the beaches and area for fossils....Mary Anning what would you have thought of the sights?
A small selection of fossils, they were absolutely everywhere of all sizes and to show some relation to size heres one next to Connor's head and it was of average size!!!
The fossil below, an ammonite, would have measured if whole approx a meter wide!!!
....photos of pebbles and rust to follow,
...but must feed the freezer and wash and iron....a week of camping takes its toll on the household appliances on return!!
