In Cape Coral several roads are being worked on with new sewer lines so the pleistocene shells lying near the surface are often exposed in their dirt piles. Yesterday I decided to walk along one of the roads and check the loose shells for fossils. I found the normal abundant things for that layer, a couple of cute little pieces to keep, and this coral which I didn't recognize. If someone would identify it for me I would be grateful. It is a nice little addition to me collection of neat looking corals from the southwest Florida area.
The plane tickets are purchased and the sifter and 'Florida Snow Shovel' have already arrived in Cape Coral! My in-laws have a place in Cape Coral and the wife and I visit them every year in early March. Last year we went to Venice Beach and I totally got hooked on fossils and sharks teeth. Living in the Pennsylvania, I don't get down to Florida often, but I have been able to make it to Calvert Cliffs twice this winter. While I did find some very small teeth the last time (my first time) at Venice Beach, just south of the pier I am hoping to find some better spots. I am not looking for anyone to reveal any personal sites or honey holes, but I hope some forum member can chime in and and let me know some decent places to look. I know we will for sure be making a family trip to Venice Beach for a day, but I also hope to be able to steal a day on my own for fossil exploration. Any information or tips would be much appreciated. I will get a permit prior to the trip, and the in-laws gracefully took down a sifter and scoop for me when they left a few weeks ago. There is nothing like examining your finds while sipping some Wicked Dolphin Rum and sitting on the canal!
