Today i finally visited port mulgrave. It was wet, sludgy and foggy. I had looked forward to visiting this place for ages.

I parked at the top and then begun the long slippery climb down. The ladders are pretty steep and it’s a long, wet climb down but it’s worth it for crazy fossil hunters like us.

Once at the bottom and you climb down the ladder to the beach ammonites are everywhere, i found two right next to each other (bottom left picture). I was very pleased to find a good belemnite and it came out without breaking!

It seems you’ll always find things here, But the hardest part is getting back up the cliff with a bag full of fossils. Here are my finds from today!

 

A very productive site! Thanks for reading

Very jealous of you folks who get to find ammonites on beaches such as this.    :envy:   

Thanks for the report, Liam. :)

I, too, wish I that could find ammonites and belemnites in my area but, alas, the rocks around me are just too old. :(

 

At least I get to see fellow members such as yourself find them in their local areas!  Thanks for sharing! :dinothumb::ammonite01:

It seems y9ou had a wonderful day!  I really liked the cephalopods - We don't seem to have them in my area!  The belemnite is my favorite.... :drool:
