SS8948 : Towards Hurlestone Point

taken 7 years ago, near to Bossington, Somerset, Great Britain

Towards Hurlestone Point
Towards Hurlestone Point
The shingle of Bossington Beach gets smaller as one walks towards Hurlestone Point, due to the action of the waves pushing it along and eroding it (longshore drift I believe it is called). It is still pretty tiring to walk along it here though. The beach ends abruptly at Hurlestone Point in SW8949
