Look Out

I must admit this did give me a jump when I first saw it in the dark in the Fossil Shop in Lyme Regis, Dorset, back in July 2016.  Lyme Regis is well know for it fossils on the coast, I’m not sure this one was found on the beach, it is most likely a replica of one, but it does make you look twice in the dark.

The town is noted for fossils found on its beaches and in the cliffs which are part of the Heritage Coast—known commercially as the Jurassic Coast—a World Heritage Site stretching for 153 kilometres (95 mi), from Orcombe Point near Exmouth in the west, to Old Harry Rocks in the east.

  1. That is a rather terrifying sight! Fascinating about the fossils, though. I think I shall have to look that up. Nice shots. I think the black and white is scarier. 🙂

    1. Thank you Pat. When Fleur was little, we use to visit the beach and collect small fossils, by breaking open the slate. I still have one with a very small winged like animal in a stone I found there 🙂

    1. Ha ha, I bet he was a cutie really. They did find them that big in the cliffs there, the daughter of the first fossil shop owner found the biggest one, worth a google 🙂

  2. Haha, he would give anyone a fright, Lynne! I’ve been to Kimmeridge once – what an amazing place, with fossils everywhere you look. Makes me want to go back! 🙂
