The river has been pretty swollen the last few weeks from tropical storm Hanna and the north eastern we just had. I have been out a few times but the higher than normal tides have made most trips uneventful. When I last visited the James River an enormous amount of sand had been pushed up on the beach. I had to search higher up close to the cliffs and tree line to get to exposed gravel and shell. I found a dozen or so small teeth and a busted Meg. I was feeling pretty good about that Meg so I decided to hit another beach further up river on the way home. Good thing I did because that is when I found the two larger teeth. I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw that red Meg in matrix. I am hoping the tide will be lower this Wednesday and it takes some of that sand with it. I will be there.
