Look what I found on the beach recently. It's a Thing!! I'm not sure if it's a fossil, or just a lump of coral. We don't have reefs here, so if it is coral it's come a long way. Or it really is a fossil from when the UK was tropical - you know from way back when dinosaurs were here.
It certainly looks like old bone, all full of holes and pores. I found it while looking for gray and white stones to pilfer for my garden (it's against the law to take stones from the beaches, but I'm not taking them far you see.)
Sassy's taken it to school from show-and-tell, but the teacher didn't know. I plan on bringing it to the University, but haven't been able to make an appointment. So do any of you know what it is?
I have a thing about rocks, I'm always looking for the perfect one. I have kept this one for many years, I found it on a beach (that no longer exists, as it fell into the sea shortly after I visited. Califonia is scary.) near San Francisco when I was there for my brother's wedding. It's completely gray, except for the perfect heart on the top of it. It's my all time favourite. I always think of the song "I left my heart in San Francisco" with a wicked grin, and think "I've got it now."
