Bournemouth and The Jurassic Coast, England, July 2017


Bournemouth is a large coastal resort town on the south coast of England directly to the east of the Jurassic Coast, a 155 km World Heritage Site on the English Channel. The Jurassic Coast spans 185 million years of geological history, coastal erosion having exposed an almost continuous sequence of rock formation covering the Triassic, Jurassic and Cretaceous periods. At different times, this area has been desert, shallow tropical sea and marsh, and the fossilised remains of the various creatures that lived here have been preserved in the rocks. Natural features seen on this stretch of coast include arches, pinnacles and stack rocks. —From Wikipedia.
