Had my parents come over for a few days this last weekend. On the Saturday, we spent most of the day walking around the wooded valleys, beaches and cliffs of Nash Point and Monknash. The tide was right out at Monknash revealing some amazing rock structures and I was determined to find a fossil. As the tide started to turn and we headed back an unusual pattern on one flat rock caught my eye, we washed the sand off to reveal this...
Minutes later, something else caught my eye - I found a lump of quartz or something like it jarred between 2 sections of the natural rock 'pavementing'.
I am absolutely loving being so connected with nature.
I heard something today about a 'church' in the woods near Hereford for tree huggers. As you have probably worked out by now - I have been known to hug the odd tree and it's also true that I sleep with a rock I picked up from Ogmore beach a few miles round the coast from where we found this fossily thing, so maybe I'll have to check this woodland church thing out. So if you know anything about it, do spill the beans!
