Down by the Seashore
By Patti Hutchison
  

1     The shoreline is the place where the land meets the sea. Shorelines are shaped by waves and tides. Some are rocky; some have smooth sandy beaches.
 
2     A wave breaking on a rocky shoreline is an awesome sight. A rocky headland is a point of land sticking out into the water. It receives most of the force of the eroding waves. These headlands have very interesting landforms.
 
3     The water may cut steep cliffs into the shore. Below these cliffs, a wave-cut platform is created. This is a flat area of rock, which has been eroded over time. Along these platforms, weaker rocks are removed by the waves. Stronger rocks are left behind, often in fascinating formations.
 
4     Sea stacks look like tall rounded chimneys sticking up out of the rock. Waves can form sea arches in the rock. They look like carved-out bridges. The seawaters can also cut caves into the rock at the surface of the water.
 
5     Other shorelines are covered with beaches. A beach is a band of mostly level land. They are covered with sand, mud, or pebbles. They gently slope toward the edge of the water.
