Beach Journal_2017 Part 1

As with my geological journal, if I go down to the beach (a short walk from my house) I always have my beach journal with me. It contains memories, photo's sketches, observations about flora and fauna, weather phenomena and even archaeological facts about my local area. This is only Part 1 of my 2017 journal. The rest will be uploaded later in the year.

















Geological Observations Journal 2017 Part 1

I never go anywhere without my geological observations journal/notebook. They contain photo's, memories, memory joggers, facts, science, observations and sketches. It is testimony to my complete and utter life-long fascination about the world we live in, how it works, the wonder of geologic time and our place in it. This is Part 1. Part 2 will be uploaded later in 2017.

Geology may not be everyone's 'cup of tea'...but the more we know about this awesome planet, perhaps the better off we are to protect it.

Here are the first 3 spreads:
