Monday Geology Picture: Hermanus Beach Rocks
Posted by Evelyn Mervine
This past weekend my husband and I and some friends visited the little seaside town of Hermanus, which is located about an hour and a half drive from our home in Cape Town, South Africa. Normally, the weather in April in South Africa is starting to become somewhat cold. However, we enjoyed unseasonably warm weather this past weekend. Thus, we spent plenty of time walking along the seashore and even swimming in the sea itself during our visit to Hermanus. The seashore at Hermanus is bordered by beautiful, dark sedimentary rocks of the Malmesbury Group. which you can read more about here. A few of these rocks are shown in the picture above.
