The power of the waves is showing well here, with some lovely shapes too Keith. A lovely example differential of coastal erosion! Let's hope that a certain person doesn't get stranded ..... :)))

Cheers, Amelia

Thanks Amelia. I am slowly getting the Corfu photos up her with the (un)lovely new uploader.

This area of Sidari is eroding quite quickly and there have been many changes to the shoreline in the last 30 years (judging by the B&W photos hanging in the bar at our accomodation). The grey layers are compressed silt which you can rub off with wet hands. The yellow-brown layers are crumbly sandstone and a thin film comes off every time it rains. The brown stuff Linda is standing on is dried seaweed. The sea is non-tidal, but it frequently gets quite rough when the wind gets up.

I thought I had better correct my mistake before a certain Lord Campadoon arrives ;)
