From the Forest to the Sea – Part 2

The coast line that greeted us was a dramatic one, even on an overcast day. Here, the forest and the ancient lava flow met the Pacific Ocean.

The basalt column cliffs were formed from lava flows from Omuroyama, about 4000 years ago. In geological terms, that’s all very recent. The flows went on for miles, and it’s a great place to walk along.

The Jogasaki Coast walk was 9km long, but we didn’t need to walk such a long way to get some great views.

There was even a 60 metre suspension bridge (suspended 18 metres above the sea) from which to appreciate the scene.

We weren’t the only ones enjoying the morning walk. This couple were walking a pair of beagles along the bridge. I must say that our beagle, Bridie, wouldn’t be so daring as these little guys.
