It is odd to see these structures out into the Atlantic Ocean, not too far off shore. Our weather was not the best but the conditions added atmosphere to the visit.

Geography field trip to here; amazing black sand which is warm to sit on (due to the sun being out). Further up the coast is columnar jointing of basalt
