It was an embankment that was quite high up from the road.
Although from afar, it looked like a sandy beach, when we approached, we found that it was in fact a pebbled beach.

By the way, in the Isle of Portland, rabbits are unlucky.
They do not seem to be sure about the origin, but at the quarry, immediately after a rabbit ran out of its burrow, a disaster, such as a rolling rock or a landslide would happen, they say.

Even now, when someone mentions rabbits, some of the old local people would frown.
