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 2/20/21
It's bright and sunny today, but still cold, never cracking 32 at Cove Point, although our thermometer in the back made it all the way to 34 for a brief time. Nevertheless, the sun through the ice heats the dark twigs on the trees and melts the ice. It's been raining ice cubes all day as a result.
We had a 15-20 kt WNW wind at the beach; not quite enough west to spare us the brunt of the wind. You can still see the ice in the trees.
About as far up the beach as we wanted to go.
Not a great day for fossils, but we did manage seven fairly ordinary sharks teeth.
Another 100,000 cf or so of natural gas headed overseas.
