Figure 10. View toward the southwest from the path. A small "pocket beach" is nestled between bedrock headlands of the Kittery Formation. For some reason, the bedrock surface at this place has been eroded deeply enough that it is completely covered by sediment, mainly cobbles and pebbles. The bedrock headlands restrict the transport of beach sediment along the shore, which allows this beach to be quite different from the next beach to the south (Site A) which is on granite bedrock.
