Monday Geology Picture(s): Port Elizabeth Pebbles

Posted by Evelyn Mervine

Various pebbles on the beach in Port Elizabeth, South Africa, December 2012.

For this week’s Monday Geology Picture post, I thought I would share some pictures which I took last month on a beach in Port Elizabeth, South Africa. As I was walking along the beach with my husband and some friends, we came across a pile of rounded pebbles of various lithologies. Some of the rounded pebbles seem to be anthropogenic in origin– I think they are rounded pieces of brick.
