This rock rocks!

A beautiful rock discovery at Godrevy on Monday

This rock was teeming with life, colour and inspiring textures. I discovered it by accident and had to climb right underneath to get this shot. I'm so glad I found it! Fabulous inspiration for a new rockpool textile piece, I think!

Have a lovely day - Carolyn ♥

So glad to see your pebbles back 7 as for your rockpools they are stunning. did you get a chance to see the 'walk' I shared on my blog? I was trying to email you with a request for a postcard swap to celebrate my 50th birthday end of next month, but I couldn't find one. Would you be interested? e mail me
studio@heavens-ocean,co.uk - I'll understand if you're too deep in your glorious pools, they certainly inspire me!

I am also a rock 'hound'- will buy them, carry heavy ones from the beach with sweat pouring down, collect them, along with ammonites and fossils and driftwood-- good thing I live above the beach-- with access a short walk away

Diane said...

Lovely - and the music too - perfect. xxxxxxx
