Fault line tidal pool


I have had my eye on this tidal pool for a while. Exposed at low water at "the deeps" between Ogmore and Southerndown i have put crab pots out in it before and caught a good supply of velvet swimming crabs. These crabs are natures thugs, very very mean they go about looking for a fight and although their claws are small they pack one hell of a punch.

The pool runs parallel with the shore, along an old straight fault line in the rocks. Its a natural swimming lane for one person. Luckily, i didn't get mugged by any crabs but i was nervous as i swam through the seaweed.
