One day you wash up on the beach, wet and naked. Another day you wash back out. In between, the scenery changes constantly.

Beach Report 10/10/17
Another very un-Fall like day here, with temperatures near 80, muggy, and mostly clear skies. The tide was almost dead low when we got there this morning, leaving a lot of exposed beach, and we could walk a lot farther up than usual.
If only we could train Skye to sniff out fossils instead of more recent, and smellier trash.
Georgia scored early with this fish spine. I always call them catfish, but I'm not really sure. This might be the longest I've seen here as they break much more easily than teeth.
Probably just a shed. I didn't nudge it to find out.
Georgia scored the biggest tooth of the day bu far with this Mako. She claims to have found it in a footprint. It joined the good specimens on the kitchen window sill after a measure off. All in all, we got 27 teeth, so a pretty good day. Georgia did better by far, despite the handicap of holding the leash.
