Low and high tide

My week started on Tuesday when I was able to take some time off from work and hit the beach.  I got there early,  but as Fat Boy mentioned in his post, others had the same idea.  While I do love those rare days when I have the beach to myself, it's really nice to be out there with good people.  Great to have met you FB. 
Anyway, I took my slow and steady approach and did pretty well.  My Tuesday finds are the ones below the measuring tape in the picture.  I got two small megs, one up on the beach and another out in the water (the water picture didn't turn out), a couple makos and a nice cow.  I didn't realize it until I got home (and please correct me if I'm wrong), but I also found a nice pathological sand tiger.  It was nice to finally get some megs as it had been quite a while since my last complete one. 

Thursday I wasn't expecting to be able to get out, but my work schedule shifted and so I shot down to the beach.  The tide was real high and it didn't go out all morning.  The waves were so high I would probably not have come away with any teeth had I surface hunted.  I found a small patch of open beach and raked there the whole time.  I quickly found the big lower mako (cursed the missing root lobe), pretty hemi, and dolphin tooth.  I didn't find anything else interesting until right before I left when I found a few teeth including the thresher, hammerhead, and a really nice upper cow.  I'm glad I stayed those extra five minutes.
Both trips ended up being pretty good ones.  It was great to be able to get out for a bit both days, especially with nice weather like we had.

Here is where I found the first 3.5 ...I mean 1.5 meg.
It was hard to show, but the blade twists fairly significantly at the tip.
