Same story as last time unfortunately The pile is 98% worthless. I found 6 small teeth. A thorasic vertebrate was the best find of the day. There was a 3.5 inch meg found at the complete other end of the beach....where I wasn't at. Enjoy the pictures

Don't let it get you down Tony, you fought the good fight, and came away with a few things to show for your efforts. Digging builds character. Digging and finding nice Megs, well, that just brings a big smile to your face! I don't know what it is with the material at that particular beach. I know the pile you dug in, and I've sifted like 50 buckets worth of that stuff, and lucky to come away with the same amount of teeth or less. Per cubic yard of material, some of our other beaches I think I have more fossils in them. What I like about the pile you're digging in is that the color of the fossils that come from it can have really nice colors like tans and reds, at least to my colorblind eyes they are :). You know it's a slow day though when you take pics of shells! I know the large on in the middle of the pic is fairly uncommon, at least to find them whole anyway. Content Quality : 10 of 10
