A Bluebird Day at the Beach

Is it really January?  It just seems wrong, but I'm not complaining.  And there was a pair of bluebirds out sitting on the cable around the beach parking lot.
It was 50 F and rising, the tide was low, the wind was minimal, and the sky was blue. Utterly gorgeous. 

Georgia looks for fossils, while Skye looks for ground hogs.  While we didn't see any today, I've heard people report that they saw one out and about.

"Flying Eagle" was around.  I go this picture of him/her taking off

We found a lot of shark's teeth today.  Here is one of the many really small ones I picked up, not much larger than a grain of sand.

Georgia had the hot hand for quality, though, starting with this fragment of a cow shark tooth.

My best of the day was this large, but worn Snaggletooth.

But just as we were getting ready to leave, Georgia found this Mako tooth.  A little worn, with some missing root, but still a pretty decent find.  Overall we found some 45 sharks teeth, and four Black Drum's teeth.  A respectable haul.
