Wyre shore

Very different, but quite close to the bigger rocks. I wonder if this is where flagstones used for roofs came from. There was a photo long ago of a group of men lifting up a big flagstone from the shore of Onziebist, and I think the roof of the Ha', where I was born, had a flagstone roof. Must look for a photo of that now!
