Last Sunday we went to a pebble beach called Mølen. It’s part of the terminal moraine that the last ice age left around a lot of the Norwegian coast, so the pebbles on it are of very different rocks of very different ages. Nice place.
They have a permanent exhibition of some of the different rocks found on Mølen. The oldest stones are around 1,5 billion years old while the youngest, flint, is only about 60 million years old. Most of the rocks were brought here from the mountains by the immense glacier, but the flint probably floated up from Denmark or somewhere frozen in chunks of ice.
I don’t know what this is called, but it’s very pretty growing in a puddle. This day I think the puddle was filled with fresh water, but it’s close to the sea, so I think it’s equally as often filled with salt water. Makes for hardy plants.
To participate in the Saturday Snapshot meme you must post a photo that you (or a friend or family member) have taken and then leave a direct link to your post in the Mister Linky at that Saturdays Snapshot post at At Home With Books. Photos can be old or new, and can be of any subject as long as they are clean and appropriate for all eyes to see. How much detail you give in the caption is entirely up to you. All Alyce asks is that you don’t post random photos that you find online.
