Kimmeridge Bay 3/5

The natural limestone ledges like the one in the foreground here extend out into the bay make it easy to view life on the shore and in the shallow waters, which make it a wonderful location for rockpooling. On the top of Hen Cliff in the background is Clavell’s Tower, more of that tomorrow.

Jolie vue, j'aime les bords de mer.
Brian Walbey: Lovely place isn't it.
Looks like a fun beach, Brian.
Brian Walbey: It is a bit of sand but mainly this sort of thing if I recall, but families flock there so the kids can search for fossils.
I'd love to have a wander...
Brian Walbey: I suspect you could quite easily spend some time here Elizabeth. Far be it for me to tell you what to do but have you considered spending a couple of days along the Dorset coast when you come over in September, you are at least half way there from your English home when we all meet on the 3rd.
A definite place for combing, Brian, instead of sunbathing!
Brian Walbey: Very much so Ginnie.

This would be a great place to visit and just wander around and look for the treasures from the sea, Brian. Great place, wonderful view.
Brian Walbey: We really enjoyed our visit to this bay, we had just moved on from that deserted village of Tyneham i posted a series about a while back so all in all it was a great afternoon out.

These natural platforms are a real feature
Brian Walbey: Indeed they are Chris, Mother Nature at her best once again.

I must get back, Brian. I will be visiting a friend near there at the weekend, but it will be too hot to walk

(If your friend lives near Kimmeridge then you also wouldn't be far from Tyneham which would be a more restive, interesting and alternative venue for a trip out)

Fascinating rock formation Brian.

Pier Limestone. Brighton should be jealous.
Brian Walbey: Mother Nature at her best once again. Brighton probably has the worst beach in the country IMHO, all stones and shingle, but for some reason the media go mad over the place any time we get good weather, I guess because it is the nearest resort to London!
Rock pooling one of my life long favourite activities
Brian Walbey: A pasttime Maureen enjoys when we get to the coast.

No place for sunbathing, rather for walking and rock pooling.
Brian Walbey: Indeed Philine, most of the beach is of a rocky type but mostly people go to search for fossils in the cliffs.

It looks like a man-made pier. I bet it's heaving down there this week.
Brian Walbey: Yes it does look like the left overs from a man-made pier. I bet all the south coast places are heaving this week.
A fascinating spot!
Brian Walbey: Yes it really is Tom.
What was this olds foundation I wonder? An old wharf?
Brian Walbey: I'm not sure if that is a natural feature or man made.
