The White Monument...

The White Monument...
...on the cliff top.
It is visible from my house.
The story is that the geologist it was put up to remember, proved that the islands were once connected to the mainland, by a ridge of flint going under the sea. This marker is were it rises out of the sea and forms a spine down through all the islands. I hear there is one on the mainland where it goes into the sea.
You can tell by the difference in the two pics that the weather did change quite a bit while I was sitting there having a rest before heading back home.
Every few years, someone goes out and paints it!
