Today I went out to my girlfriend's grandparent’s house in Reedville. This works out great for me because it's not far from Westmoreland County and I usually make it a point to sneak off for a quick trip. We arrived around noon ate lunch and caught up for a while, and then it was off to the Potomac. When I got to the beach it was raining, the tide was high and there was a thick layer of fog blanketing the the river. I walked for a while before I found the first tooth, a broken Hemi. There was so much sand washed up on the beach all the good stuff was covered, so I had to search close up to the cliffs. The best finds of the day where the two epiphysis in perfect shape. Running short on light and time I headed back to Reedville to pick up Katie and start home. I didn't find much but at least I got my fix. I snapped a shot of the beach on my phone, the cliffs look kind of spooky covered in fog. Thanks for checking in.  Jake

I was also out Sunday but much further upriver from you. It rained the entire time the river looked pretty spooky! I wish I had taken a good pic of it.

Thanks for the pic of the shoreline/bank, I always wondered what it looked like on that side. Daryl. Content Quality : 10 of 10
