Dog Friendly Fossil Hunting

It's been a bit of a lean period for photography recently, but hopefully I'll be able to change that over the Christmas period.  Due to a clerical error I had lots of holiday to use up at the end of the year, so I've taken up Frances's invitation to spend a week in Bristol.  Yesterday we went to Watchet on the Somerset coast, which claimed to have a "Dog Friendly Fossil Beach".  Curious to know what Dog Friendly Fossils looked like, Frances and I headed down there with Amber.  Not much in the way of fossils (dog friendly or otherwise) but still a great place for a Winter walk on the beach.  The rock formations were amazing too, with rich veins of Quartz (both White and Rose) in the red sandstone.
