Wai iti beach

Our first stop was Wai Iti beach. 
We had been there before but not when the tide was this low. 
I was tickled because I had recently seen a picture there that someone had called petrified tree trunks. After some research, I found nothing else that called the formations that, but I like the idea.



The photos below were taken by Hubby.




Thanks to Jeff at Taken for Granted for the identification of these lovely formations: Stromatolites.

These interesting looking rock formations appear to be Stromatolites, the earths oldest fossils going back millions of years to the very first life form on earth, cyanobacteria. Stromatolites are much more interesting than petrified trees.

Beautiful photos .... I’d love a beach like that and you hit the right tide time! I liked the petrified tree trunk guess just fine, but I love that our fellow blogger Jeff knew what they were and told you and all of us about stromalites. Blogging is truly educational as well as fun!

As always great captures of the coast Betty! Missed your take on Communal Global last week - hope everything is okay and you're just busy?

Things on the internet has been kinda upside down on my side, because with this on and off snow, the internet is too weak in the mountains... Did you got my comment last week? Hope to see you there this week before Wed. eve. - thanking in advance!
