Beach Report, Sunday 8/3/14

After a cloudy morning, the sky started to clear, and we headed to the beach around 2:30, to catch the low tide.
Despite the low tide, fossil hunting was tough; we managed 11 small shark's teeth and a drum tooth.  Georgia spotted this bigHorseshoe Crab shed.  It's not a dead crab, it's empty, the crab has crawled out and formed a new, larger shell.  It's a little early for the big molt, which seems to take place in Sept., but you might find one almost any time.
"At least throw a stick! I'm a retriever, not a setter!"

A freighter and the Dominion Gas Docks stretched and reflected by the mirage.
