Not all the rocks on Garrettstown Strand have the nuanced colouring and delicate integral patterns shown in earlier posts. Some at the southern end of the beach are full of iron that has weathered into interesting hues from orange to purple. The rusty-coloured rock strata are often re-shaped into massive curving folds: seen as cross-sectional in the cliff but resembling a series of frozen waves on the shore. Many of the beach stones at the base of the cliff are derived from the same dark dramatic rocks.
