Tansy was very pleased to get a second visit to Balance Rock…
There are so many fascinating varieties of rocks on this beach alone – if Tansy wasn’t already hankering after an Archaeological career, she would be tempted to take up geology!!
This sandstone looks just like a pile of sand patted into shape – it’s a wonder it doesn’t just dissolve with the wave action.
Actually – the sandstone IS dissolving, but relatively slowly!
Some rock is being scoured by other rocks, leaving smooth-sided round-bottomed bowls.
…Tansy was very taken by this lovely little scouring-rock boulder. The photographer got a very nice picture, but did not offer to start carrying a rock collection home for Tansy.
The wonders and beauty of nature are seemingly endless.
Tansy climbed a little higher to admire it all the better.
What an incredible view!
