12th - 13th August:Above: Worm's Head, looks like a dragon swimming out to sea!

Spent the weekend helping out with exploration of a cave near Port Eynon, but on Saturday evening, I went for a walk along Rhossili Bay.

Shipwrecks and sea caves!

There were boulders of fantastic breccia with some massive clasts and a matrix of red sand with calcite veins and shell fragments. I assume, also a carbonate cement.

Scale = 8cm.
