When bad dog and I got to the beach today, the tide was low and the weather was mild and breezy.  I wasn't finding much, but at least I brought a camera and was able to get a few good pictures:  Two ground shots of some sand tigers and a picture of the scallop shells that cover the beaches around here.  No wonder it's our state fossil.

I really like those ground shots. I've been to similar beaches and it's amazing how many nice Chesapectin shells you can pick up and also ones with nice barnacles growing on them. I always wondered how many teeth are underneath them! I always look forward to your reports! Content Quality : 10 of 10

Had know idea how numerous those shells were! Nice perspective photo. What's the average size on those / how big they get? Now I can't wait to get some work in you neck of the woods. Content Quality : 10 of 10

Yeah, it kinda makes you feel guilty walking on them and breaking them, the kind of guilt from not being on a diet so you don't break them, or simply because you broke something that's been there for millions of years. LOL Content Quality : 10 of 10
