View of the mudflats in the enclosed bay. To the right of the trowel (see close-up) is a living seaweed colony attached to a pebble. Behind this is the erosional groove (a kind of tool mark) created as it dragged along the muddy bottom during transport by a tidal current.
Scale: Trowel is 30 cm long
Grid reference: Looking north from 866 270 at low tide
