Woollie Wanderings - Lunan Bay & Auchmithie
Walking on the Angus coast this weekend was a delight. A trip to the beach always is good for the soul, the sound of the waves lapping on the shore, the oyster catchers screeching and the pebbles underfoot, the tone changing dependent on the size of the pebbles.
Lunan Bay is a horseshoe shaped beach backed by high sand-dunes and is always a pleasure to walk along, the tide chasing you along.
After Lunan Bay we headed to Auchmithie, a small fishing village, perched high on the cliffs above it's old harbour and pebbled beach. The red sandstone cliffs are full of conglomerate pebbles of all varieties - a real geologist's dream! Look at the line of quartz running through the sandstone like a river........ the paint flaking boats.......... the sandstone arch.......
We were also lucky enough to see dolphins frolicking in the bay!
