Watch where you tread

There has been much movement on my local beaches and cliffs - this fragile coastline has treasures to find one day and they disappear the next. Some are taken by the fossil hunter and others are lost to the sea.

This delightful find was here one day and gone the next - to me it looks like a very old foot / shoe inprint. Maybe a Victorian fossil hunter left their own mark in the soft Jurassic clay? The shape and size of the mark is interesting - we were much smaller then and shoes constructed in two halves, who knows? Poking around on the beach is as old as these rocks.
