a very nice curve to that stretch ahead, Brian. a beach with such big blocks is very unusual to me.
Brian Walbey: It has a sweeping curve Ayush, tomorrows picture shows it better. the blocks are probably left over from WWII being part of fortifications.

That tower up there had to be moved further inland because of cliff erosion a few years ago
Brian Walbey: That doesn't surprise me with the type of rock it is built on.

I was going to say the same as Chris., I believe that they are still extracting oil from way out at sea and brining it ashore just above the cliffs on the left.
Brian Walbey: It is a very crumbly type of rock there isn't it.

Another excellent by composition and what a place. I have been way too fast through Dorset when I was there the last time.
Brian Walbey: I guess when travelling overseas, which we haven't done for a while, it is difficult to fit in everything in the short time available.
Dorset delights....we will have to go there again
Brian Walbey: That stretch along through Swanage and to what is called the Jurassic coast is really nice.

I like the green on those rocks Brian.
Brian Walbey: It was really the best of spring colours in May.

What a stony beach, but the cliffs are impressive!
Brian Walbey: It is a nice place to visit Philine.

What a scenic cove, I wonder if there are fossils to be found in those cliffs.
Brian Walbey: Kimmeridge is probably one of the best known places in the country for finding fossils, hence the cliff face is quite loose shale type material.
Oh, I like to see the tessellated pavement on the right.
Brian Walbey: I will be showing a picture with more of that paving in it very soon.

I remember reading about two ladies who parked their car on the cliffs here and it ran over on to the rocks below
Brian Walbey: I must admit there isn't much of a barrier to stop vehicles going over the edge.
I guess they are fossil hunters in that area.
Brian Walbey: Kimmeridge is probably one of the best known places in the country for finding fossils, hence the cliff face is quite loose shale type material.
I looking out across the bay
Brian Walbey: It is a lovely bay, if you and Frank come over for a lengthy stay at some time I'm sure you would enjoy a few days along this coast.
