...more closely captured, in Washington Oaks Park, for which the unique shoreline of that section of the Atlantic beach is famous. These rocks are a rather strange phenomena for a Florida beach.

Here is Wikipedia's information on the formation of coquina rock. Interestingly enough, a picture of this same beach.

January 1st is around the corner, along with an end to my daily posts, at least for now.

This will make such a great geography lesson.when I was a student,my geog teacher only showed me hand-drawn pictures,which were dull and boring.I stopped taking geog at 14 and took history instead.I wonder why my teachers never bothered to show us real-life pictures like these!

@tyan: This is another testament to the wonder of digital photography, I guess. Being visual individuals, photos speak loudly to us! ... Take good care of yourself as you tend to Joy and the boys!

I like the idea of these being called coral rags! It sounds special! If you look long enough at them you can discover some animal shapes....(Well, it is hot here...but it is not because of the heat that I see animal shapes!)

@Japanalia: You are correct in that looking more closely, you clearly see all the shells that are in the sedimentary rock! ;D
