Geo 365: Dec. 11, Day 345: Sedimentary Breccia

I almost described this as "conglomerate," then I took a closer look. Given the angularity of the clasts, I think "sedimentary breccia" is a better description. This is on the road side of what looks like a large sea stack, tectonically uplifted enough to be mostly above sea level- completely, at high tide- on the shore south of Gold Beach, Oregon.
