One of the more mundane jobs of a Ranger is taking water meter readings every so often for some of our troughs. I had to go to Lee yesterday to do this and decided to take a short detour to Sandy Cove to check the long flight of wooden steps which lead down to the beach. Sandy Coves is a lovely isolated little beach to the west of Lee. Steps were all fine but I had a little explore and came across some strange patterns in the flat pebbles. Amongst the flat ones where masses which had been up ended I guess as the tide surges in and out though the rock gullies leaving amazing patterns.
