Today we were directed to Widemouth Bay. The owners of the Campsite we are staying at suggested it when I mentioned Ems love of Rocks. We were not disappointed.
We started at Black Rock beach. Black Rock is in the south side of the bay. We also stopped to grab some lunch at the Lovely Black Rock Café.
Our day at Black Rock beach in Widemouth Bay
We made sure to arrive early in the morning during low tide. This allowed the girls to be able to enjoy the tide pools. If you forget anything you might need. Then the little shop within the Black Rock Café is well stocked from jelly shoes to wet suits.
We found Jellyfish, Sea Urchins, crabs and more in the rockpools left behind during the low tides. Before leaving to head back to our camp we stopped at the Black Rock Café and had a fabulous lunch.
Within the Bay there was a whole collection of rock formations. We even found some Upper Carboniferous Fossils on the larger rocks under the seaweed. Emily was very keen to rummage through the seaweed to find them. Unfortunately we didn’t spot any to take home this time.
If you would like to find more about where to find fossils in the UK check out the UKFossils Website. I have left it on the web page for the Black Rock Beach encase you wished to venture there yourself.
