Beach Report 4/27/21

Another gorgeous day here in slower Maryland, with temperatures rising from 65 to 80 at home under mostly sunny skies, and a slight west breeze. Skye and I walked down alone, and waited for Georgia to catch up.
A fairly ordinary Carcharhinus tooth, as found.
But my best find of the day was this complete stingray mouth plate, complete (they're fragile compared to shark's teeth).
Then Georgia caught up to me, with this fine White Shark tooth which she found in beach I'd already walked.
And then, just to rub it in, found a second one as we were walking side by side.
All in all we found 49 shark's teeth, and some other miscellaneous things.
The Pride of Baltimore II, tacking up the Bay on it's way from Norfolk (pronounced nah-fuk by locals) to her home port of Baltimore (pronounced Balmer). You can often find the identity of weird ships you see on Marinetraffic.com.
