Last weekend, my wife's annual family reunion took place in Newport News, Virginia. Our schedule was full of activities but I thought I must check out what fossils the York River had to offer. So while all family members slept in (Group breakfast at 8;30), I snuck out for a quick hunt. This was my first view of the York River, a photo op moment: This alone made my day!!! But I was here to find a fossil typical for the area. As I parked, I met a local gentleman that was here for the same purpose. Though he didn't want to hunt together, he directed me to an area to collect in. His help was greatly appreciated and my success was a direct result of his suggestions. Here are my Pectans, all are Chesapecten jeffersonius ??? A couple bigger ones: Mixed in with the pectans were bone fragments, some big, some small. Only wish they could be identified: Puffer mouth plate?
