Fossil finding!

Time for something different! Today, we headed out of Hull to the ‘dinosaur coast’ to look for fossils. The weather was warm, the day clear and so off we went. Robin Hood’s bay is just south of Whitby and features some picturesque countryside and views. Car parking is at the top of the hill, and you have to walk down a considerably steep incline to get to the beach.

Walking along the firm sand was a lovely experience, and we searched for fossils. They can be found in the cliffs, which are made from a crumbly slate-like rock.

We walked for a good hour but we didn’t find any fossils. I did find egg rock, a flat rock and a rock with red in it though. They have been added to the rock collection in front of the fire place and I had a really good day. The walk back up the hill was less fun, but all in all, it was great fun.
