A Ray of Sunshine at the Beach

A cool, bright but breezy late October day at the beach. Skye and I walked down, while Georgia drove down and met us.
 The tide was dead low, and even lower than the astronomical prediction due to the north winds.
Today's beach finds (not the quarter, although I found a $5 bill in the surf a while back). The big chunk is a piece of stingray mouth plate that Georgia found. We usually find individual segments, but rarely we find them hooked together forming the pavement that rays actually use to crush and grind their food. This is the biggest we have ever found.

Apologies for the lousy cell phone pic.
