Yesterday I visited my favoriet hunting spot with a few friends.

 

Since the weather forcast was realy good we made sure to bring a portable bbq, meat and drinks.

Me and my girlfriend were the first at the location, we made a quick prospect for devonian cephalopods, but there hasn't been a lot of activity in the quarry since our last visit.

Once the group was complete we tried our luck in older parts of the quarry, but only a few cephalopods were found.

At lunchtime we set up our little bbq and equipment and enjoyed our lunch :) ( this was fossil hunting in style B) )

the afternoon we continued our search for fossils. only one extra large goniatite was found by a friend, on the other hand, my girfriend made an exellent discovery, she found a large piece of placoderm that is likely to belong of the same specimen we found last year, it wil soon join the rest of the pieces that are being preped at the museum now.

 

On the way home we made a quick stop for prospection in an other quarry, but appart from a few nice calcite cristals we had no luck here.

Still, we had a realy fun day :D

Snatch that gigantic goniatite while he's not looking! :D The placoderm your girlfriend found is also quite nice. Looks like an ideal day: lovely looking site, fine weather, good collecting, good company, and some nibbles. A perfect day! Thanks for sharing the trip with us. :)

Looks like the perfect way to spend a day. 

You may not have found much, but it really doesn't matter on days like that and what you did find was excellent.:)

Hope the placoderm part does fit with the others.

Belgium, and no cold liquid, hoppy refreshment?  That might come in a six-pack?

you didn't spot the pack of beer between the orange juice bottle and the cola bottle right from the blue frigobox? :P

No, my eyes were filled with your very fine cobb of calcite crystals.  Fossils and minerals are my thing.
