French Pass beach boulder

Boulder at French Pass, Admiralty Bay
I don't know the geological term for the rock at French Pass, but much seems halfway between clay and the real thing: soft and easily erodible but still solid enough to form distinct boulders. The small settlement of French Pass sits on the shores of Admiralty Bay in the Marlborough Sounds, the north-eastern corner of the South Island.
