Crabs!!!!

   Upon ariving at the boat launch the water was great and the parking lot was empty.  What a great day to find some nice teeth.  As we prepared the boat for lauch, a jet ski from Pennsylvania pulled in.  Could it be the Fossilguy?  It had to be!  Who else is on a jetski in late November.  After a brief chat with guy and gal and a congats for her 6 inch meg from PCS we launched the boat and followed their jetski South.  Teeth were hot and cold and I did find a nice 21/4 meg.  I also picked up my first and second crab fossils.  After meeting the fossil family in the middle of the beach and exchanginging stories we headed back as they headed for shark tooth beach.  When we made it back to the boat the wind and waves had really picked up.  I hope the couple on the jetski didn't get to wet.

Now I know why I don't have any crabs - I would never have recognized those as fossils as crabs. Looks like you found some nice stuff! Content Quality : 10 of 10

Hey, it was nice to meet you! Glad you found some nice fossils, including the crabs. That place is cool, it has all kinds of weird fossils. It looks like we both did well that day. I finally updated my fossilguy website from the trip. Later! Content Quality : 10 of 10
