We enjoyed lovely views of the East Cliff from the harbour. It has been calculated that each metre of rock would have taken about 20,000 years to accumulate on the seabed where it originated. So it would have taken about 860,000 years for the depth of the rock exposed in the cliff to accumulate. This all happened about 200 million years ago. Geology normally isn't my thing but I loved the contrast between the orange layers and the bright blue sky.
I can honestly say that in the sun this was one of the most beautiful posts I've had the pleasure of visiting. I do love a holiday abroad but you have to admit that the UK has some lovely beaches.
I'm now back in work with no major leave booked until September, dreaming of another holiday in Dorset. Sob. I do wish I was sitting on that rock looking at at the sea right now.
You will be glad to know I'm all settled in my new house with only a bit of painting left to do. Hurrah! This means nobody has to hear me talking excitedly about moving anymore.
