C&D=B (belemnites)

For a getaway weekend my wife chose a quaint B&B in Chesapeake City on theC&D Canal. But my sights were set on the spoil piles near Delaware City on the east end of the canal. They contain material from the Late Cretaceous period 65-85 m.y. Luck was with me, the area was being prepared for dredging and two big basins were formed for the spoil. It was like fossil hunting in a big sandbox. Belemnites were very common. Mostly broken, the biggest about 3" long and 1/2" in diameter. The other common fossil were Pelecypods in all shapes and sizes.
Location C and D Canal, Delaware, USA
