Geo 730: May 30, Day 516: Gorse

Not so much directly geological, though its typical setting is related to the landscape and geology (based on my experience with this invasive), as I described yesterday. More to the point on this trip, though, I hadn't been to this quarry in about 20 years. It's not the best blueschist- that seems to be the blocks in the jetty. However, when the option is there, it's good to try to get to an actual bedrock exposure, as opposed to loose, transported blocks, regardless of the "quality" of the blocks or exposure. Didn't happen, and those thorns above are the reason.
