Or natural selection – part 2
Shook out the legs today after a few days following the half. Been out on the bike but wanted the foot to recover a bit. So off to the beach for the last day of my summer holiday – back to school tomorrow. I hope the kids are nice :p
Was a bit gloomy and grey starting off. If only I could get up at sunrise to get photos like SRG does.
As the tide was well out I came across this rock which seemed to me to contain it’s own little ecosystem and world.
On my return journey I stopped where the cliffs get lower to have a quick hunt for fossils. Teh formations here are beautiful – They remind me of sedimentary tetris.
Then I started wondering about the greenery a bit further up – Mother don’t read this bit 😉
So off I went, I’m not entirely dull, I wouldn’t climb the cliffs in the photo above but there’s a section where you’re not underneath rock and the gradient allows you up with just a bit of scrambling. I also don’t like heights and so it’s time to kick that fear in the bollocks – So up I went (come on natural selection poke me in the eye)
I figured that if vegetation can grow and thrive up here then it’s all stable right? Plus it will bind everything together. Right? I found a whole new ecosystem up there that you can’t see from the beach.
It was great to explore up there a bit and the different view of the coast was cool.
After I tired of my botanical investigations (it was also cold) I clambered down carefully and rejoined my run.
I spotted this ….
I mean how? How the hell does a TV get onto the beach – in fact at least 3 miles from the nearest road over rocky terrain and not be smashed. Do TVs float?
Anyway I watched Homes under the Hammer and ran home.
You couldn’t make it up
