Yesterday was such a beautiful day and Lake ferry was awesome - flat calm, sun, blue sea, whitebaiters, fishermen, just bliss.
I decided to walk around under the cliffs for half an hour and then go down to the sea and walk back along the sand.
There are two large white crosses just below the cliffs which I wanted to investigate, which I did, climbing up almost vertically and then sliding down on my bottom.
When I got home I downloaded my photos and planned my blog and the photos disappeared. I wished all night that they would be back in the morning but no. Lake Ferry is scheduled for next Monday and the same walk.
This is Uruti beach (last Monday) and more photos of the patterns and shapes in the rocks. As the tide went out more and more of the angled rocks were exposed.
As I walked out further on the rocks the fauna changed and there were limpets tucked into curved nooks and crannies in the rocks. Some of them were quite large and they had pointed shells so they were quite tall. I wondered about this as the coast can be very fierce.
The patterns of the rocks and the sand were often similar but never the same.
And I found rusty bits. I imagined staying on the coast somehow and securing cloth to them and watching the rust evolve into marks on the cloth. The signs said "No Camping" and there are no houses.
Apparently there had been a jetty of some sort that was used to launch fishing boats from the coast.
The rocks were a mixture a brown and grey. I don't think they were very hard rocks and possibly eroded relatively quickly, they looked like sandstone and mud. What do you think? This week's research.
