A Spot with Potential - But that's it

I found a new spot that was only open for 3 days. The crew was peeling off some clay and replacing it with sand to improve drainage in preparation to build a new building. They had to dig a little deeper on one side and they hit the layer. That was Thursday, and the kids and I showed up with only an hour of daylight. Friday, we were a bit more prepared and we arrived to find a large trench with layer exposed the whole way. We dug until dark with the intent to dig all weekend if necessary. Saturday morning, rivrdigr arrived for the Lafarge hunt - a week early. He called me early to get the scoop and woke up my wife - something I'm still paying for . We hooked up a little later for some digging and we excavated until we could excavate no more. The kids got tired of finding nothing a lot earlier than we did, so they took turns burying each other in the sand. I was surprised that in three days of digging that we didn't find any complete megalodon teeth, but that's the way it is sometimes. Monday the crew buried the area and that was the end of that spot.

This is the 3 day haul from the spot.
A ground shot of an angustidens that I thought was a superhero.
It's amazing how much kids can have with just sand.

Am I a little early?
