Beauty by the sea.

In Off the beaten track. on July 23, 2011 at 8:04 am

Went to visit this lovely area near Grange, Co. Sligo a few days ago. It was fairly windy so it was quite “fresh” coming to evening.

As you enter you can go right to a stony beach or left to an area of solid rock that must cover a few acres. This solid rock area is really beautiful, well the whole area is, but this is strikingly, amazingly beautiful.

The limestone is littered with fossils, each one so beautiful and intruiging.

Depressions in the rocks hold little pools of water with the most amazing bright green algae.

Fossilised coral.

A little Sea Campion growing in a rocky crevice,

and this fab fossil made up of so many little tubes. Such a beautiful fascinating place. I shall return!
