Start of April

Earlier this month my buddy DCC and I got the chance to hit the beach and had some really great luck.  I'm posting a few pictures of my finds but I had to include one of his too.  I had some real good luck including a nice thresher, nice hemi, and a number of megs!  Not all the 'as found' shots came out that day, so I just included the ones that did.  For size reference, the largest meg is about 2 1/4".
The last picture though is his top find.  A really really sweet whale tooth (Sperm Whale I believe).  Over 6.5" and just awesome looking!  One of the best I've seen for sure.  He found it mostly buried in the sand with only a bit of the middle part of the root exposed.  It was well hidden and some people had already walked past it.  It even took him a minute to realize what it was, but man did it turn out nice!  What an awesome tooth!
