Back to our flat and the small balcony to look over the goods. . .
. . . and then off to the pub.
I asked Byron if he would guide me on a fossil field trip to either Port Mulgave or Kettleness, listed as difficult and very difficult in Dean Lomax's "Fossils of the Whitby Coast". Byron looked me up and down, literally, and, using his axis vertebra, shook his head no. Not only are these areas accessed by rope, but the recent storms have rendered the area unsafe. Naturally, these are the "High frequency find" areas - the kind that yield marine reptile skulls.
Guess you gotta know the ropes.
