Photo-a-Day Day 38

Stones/Rocks/Pebbles - I would have taken a photo of pebbles by the river on this morning's walkies.. but it was barely light and pouring... the gravel in my driveway is v bland & boring, so I thought I'd take a photo of a rock... but it is a rock with a fossil in it!

I've had this rock for getting on for 20 years I reckon (shame its a bit smashed now), we were on holiday as kids in Somerset and had gone for a long walk along the beach in the rain... when we had walked probably 3 miles we came upon a cliff and there were lots of rocks with fossils on them, me and my sister took off our raincoats and wrapped the fossils up in them and then struggled all the way back to the caravan with them.. drenched - I think we wrapped them up in our coats as we thought we may get in trouble for taking them off the beach.. we could hardly disguise the fact we had them though as we could barely walk upright... they were a bit heavy!
