cliffs at 3 sisters

Today, I'm sharing the walls of the cliffs that we saw at 3 Sisters beach. Although some of the cliff walls look like solid rock, they are indeed clay. That, of course, accounts for the water's ability to shape them into stacks and other shapes. We walked for a long time down the beach and each step was gorgeous!




Algae tells you how high the water can get at high tide. The little black dots at the bottom are tiny mussels.

I love the shapes the wind and rain are creating.

Cool photos! And how neat that the cliffs are made of clay and therefore mold into different shapes. Nature at her finest:)

I wouldn't even they're clay, they look as solid s rock. It's a very beautiful place to walk by especially on a good weather day.

Wonderful serie of posts with these formation of rocks at Taranaki, 3 Sisters cliffs are amazing... So intriguing to see the elephant rock and the Taranaki coast rock formations!
