Fossil hunting

Just back from a long weekend in Charmouth, on Dorset's Jurassic Coast. Bunn will no doubt post lots of photographs featuring dogs later, but I thought I'd just post to say that we found a good number of fossils. Several ammonites, several belemnites and a couple of bivalves.

Oh, and a couple of things that looked like fossilised shoggoths.

Not bad for our first time.

Ah Charmouth, did you go up by Golden Cap?

We drove past it...

The path from Charmouth up to Golden Cap is closed at present because of landslides, you have to go quite a long way round before you can get back onto the coast path (in either direction, the Lyme Regis cliff has collapsed too, blocking both the beach and the cliff path), so we mostly stuck to the immediate area round Charmouth.

Which things that look like fossilised shoggoths?

*is puzzled*
