Marsden Rocks

My daughter was visiting today and so we had a little trip to Marsden Rocks near South Shields. The weather was gorgeous and the sea looked very blue, unusually as it most often looks grey.
This sea stack used to be a lot bigger, there used to be an arch joining another stack. It partly collapsed in 1996 and the rest was demolished as it was classed as unsafe.



This sea stack is called Lot's Wife.




We spotted this isopod on the beach, I think it may be a eurydice pulchra
[the internet is a wonderful thing]
