Sandstone rocks and ancient dunes


One of the features of Eersterivier is the ancient sandstone rocks along the sore. They used to be dunes many moons ago but time and other factors (just don't ask me which ones) have hardened them to what they are today. The rocks are very sensitive and visitors to the area are asked not to climb on the or break off pieces.
A view down to the small bay on the left hand side of the village where the sand stone rocks start.


I followed a path to the top of the rocks and on the sea side are quite a few interesting features, amongst others a small arch through which the waves were breaking. Unfortunately my camera conked in before I could go beck there the next day when the sun was shining.
