Honolulu fossilsIt would appear that someone (or someones) have discovered my initial fossil spot. My last two trips have been empty, curiously so; not even the common finds. I probably have myself to blame by posting photos of the spot here at BRF. Ah well.
The upside however, is that I've spent time traveling this beautiful island and doing other things, including spotting out new locations. I was out dirt-biking and happened upon a stretch of coastline along the harbor and low-and-behold, fossil shells. So I can add it to my list of localities. Below I have two photos (sorry 'bout the quality) of my better finds.
What we have are a singular gray shark tooth, a few larger mushroom corals, 4 drupes (incl. two of the larger Mulberry Drupes), two augers, and four of the uncommon (supposedly rare, but I"m finding more and more of 'em) ornamented ornamented cowries Cypraea granulata (next to the corals).
Life is good.
