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 9/12/21
Georgia excused herself today so Skye and I drove down to the beach. Another fine day, in the mid 70s, mostly sunny, and a west wind that didn't touch the beach much.
Donna Jean brings in a haul of crabs.
The first tooth of the day, a smallish Snaggletooth, in not the best of condition.
The GBH was hanging out on the posing post today.
This male Eastern Tiger Swallowtail was trying to extract a sip or two of mineral laden water out to the fossiliferous cliff.
The best tooth of the day, a huge lower Snaggletooth, sadly with a broken tip. All in all, an OK fossil day, 13 shark's teeth, a drum tooth, a stingray "diamond" and a crab claw, even after Skye committed the ultimate crime and jerked my arm while I had the tooth jar open, causing me to drop it in the surf. I know I lost at least one drum tooth.
Today's mystery object. It's conical, rough, hard and stony, with cracks the way teeth often have them. I'll submit it to the experts and see if anyone has an idea.
