Things I’ve been making and the sea wall at Scara Brae

The wall is having to be repaired here because of the huge seas that come crashing into the Bay of Skaill.

 

 

 

 

Foraminefera, also found in the water and help with climate change research. The rest of the picture is about core samples, where they are found and the top section is Mill Bay on Hoy where I did lots of drawing, and where Sue and Caroline hope to take more peat cores…..

Here, the idea is to  look at the landscape as it is today , but also at the detail that geographers use when they are working out sea level change .

  1. Brought back memories of my last trip to Skaill Bay a few years ago – one moment calm and peaceful and the next, crashing waves! Look forward to seeing your progress via the blog!
