Brownies beach 11/2/17

*WARNING-LOTS OF PICTURES*

 

I took a trip to brownie’s beach today, but unfortunately I could only get there at high tide. This meant my plan of heading south where “the good stuff” Normally is would be treacherous and my normal hunting spot (really I’ve only been there once before, so maybe preferred) was under about two feet of water. So I got as south as I could with any beach above water and got to work. If one uses winnowing in their favor, even spots north of the layer of the zone four that bears the teeth can be productive. This combined with a recent rain, powerful waves to bring fossils north, and lots of concentration and the occasionally yelling when you try to grab a tooth but the wave takes it before you can take it, made it a pretty good day for me. I threw most small teeth onto shore for someone else to find, and towards the end I gave some to some passing kids (though apparently they said they have buckets at home) but I kept some nicer specimens. On my first sitting place I got a nice physogaleus contortus (please feel free to correct wrong IDs) and a fish vert. Then a large keg top floated at me, and you know what they say-when a large piece of wooden debris floats at you, it’s time to move on (what, that’s not a saying:P). I then coned the beach for areas with lager shell pieces. When it was all said and done I had found one rootless Mako (my first! A desori I believe, 9/10 inch), a very nice white symphyseal hemipristis Serra (8/10 inch), a Ray barb piece, a tooth that reminds me of a porbeagle tooth that I possess, a Ray dermal denticle (although I’m not entirely convinced it’s not a modern thorn), a half of a serrated tooth (maybe meg?), an angel shark tooth (not pictured yet), a small (bird?) bone, another fish centrum (1/4 complete), Ray teeth, chunkosauruses, and various pretty teeth. Not too bad for a second visit.

Always good when you can get some nice finds during a high tide.

Yeah! In fact, it was better than my first visit (which was not low tide but still a lot lower).

Hard to get there at low unless I leave early in the morning; it's a one hour forty five minute trip. The weekends are my sleep in time so that interferes with it!
