Inspirations in Nature 2

This afternoon (as I am typing in the cottage in Porthmadog) we went to the island of Anglesey and one of the things we did was to go for a walk along a pebbly beach.  I was struck by the colours and shapes of the pebbles and rocks – they were really varied and colourful.

There were some amazing textures and patterns on the rocks.  I don’t know what made this pattern but it looks almost like a symbol.

I love the holes in this rock:

And the ridges in this one:

We also saw this poor jellyfish stranded on the beach:


Just to put this into context, this was the view across the water – Caernarfon Castle and the Menai Straits:

And up the beach there were these wonderfully weathered wooden posts:

    I love rocks!! I Love Rocks!! I collect them from every where I go. I’m glad you’re having a wonderful vacation, Liz.

    Jean took the words right out of my mouth! I am always on the lookout for rocks, and even did a landscape quilt of huge rocks in a place called the Alabama Hills (they are actually in California). I love your pictures!
