Cold but Old January 2010 Report

My daughter and I traveled to Calvert Cliffs last month and found temperatures in the teens and a blow out tide.  There were some collectors there prior to our arrival so the pickings were slim, but our late start unfortunately was unavoidable.  I did manage to find a nice cow shark tooth and a squalodon tooth (chipped though).  She found an awesome mako and about 10 teeth to my one.  The vert pictured has some nice bite marks on it, so that was cool.  We had planned to collect about 4 hours or so but only lasted two hours.  She was too cold to continue any longer, so we left early.  Still, it took me 15 minutes to get my waders off because my wader boot laces were frozen solid!  Although the finds weren't the best, any time I get to collect with her are moments to treasure.

On the way home we saw a herd of deer with a beautiful piebald doe hanging out with them.  Below are some pics and here's a movie of the deer:

Nice finds Kevin! That is an awesome cow shark tooth! Your daughter must be shorter and closer to the ground to find so many teeth lol! Great post. It's always funny the kinds of weather conditions we all venture out in to find fossils! Content Quality : 10 of 10

The cowshark and the mako are both sweeeeet ! Nice finds, all around. My own two daughters have 'schooled' me on occasion, and that is a good thing.... well, sort of, lol ! (I'll go with Mike's reasoning, there: kids have an advantage being short) Also like the way you looked at everything, too, in that 2 hours are better than none, and the time spent hunting together is even better than the teeth. Nice report and pics! Content Quality : 10 of 10
