Finally Wet!

This week the stars aligned and we finally hit the river. This is the latest I've ever had my 1st dive of the year, but I'm glad I got to go at all. This post is for two days worth of hunting.

On the first day, da fossz joined megamouth, the weezling, and myself on a gorgeous summer day without a single cloud in the sky all day. It's awesome to have a bright overhead sun because some of the light reaches the bottom. I fanned the sand for about 3 hours and came away with some nice stuff including some big shamer angustidens shark teeth and a really nice whale tooth. I found the whale tooth in the same area as I found a whole group last year so I think this is probably associated with that set. Everyone else had an OK day except the weezling who found his first benedeni!

On the second day, t$ joined us while da fossz did the responsible thing and headed back to work. The weather started out nice but in the late afternoon clouds rolled in, soon to be followed by thunder. The finds for me were less than stellar, but t$ bagged a nice point and the weezling racked again. This time he got a big translucent spear and a really nice angustidens. That boy is on a roll!

A fair haul - there are a lot of artifacts in this section of river. Check out all the pottery shards on the left side of the photo.
