Sunrise Stroll On St. Augustine Beach

Walked down to the beach this morning to see the sunrise. Didn't expect to find very much as low tide was roughly 2 hours earlier. Surprisingly I found quite a few things including a large mammal tooth fragment!

The beach was beautiful

Thought the lines on the side of this end were interesting? Could they possibly be predation marks?

And my mammal tooth frag! This is the first one I've ever found. Was pretty excited to find it on the beach even if it is a fragment. :D

Don't have a ruler with me so quarter for scale.

Any and all feedback appreciated. Thanks! :)

Nice variety of finds. The petrified wood looks suspicious, possibly another bone fragment? You've inspired me to go on a hunt next week. ;)

Thanks CH4! :) The petrified wood may possibly be bone? It is darker than the other petrified wood pieces I found on this beach our last visit... The definite bone frag is certainly the largest I've found so far and has some pretty colors in it! Unfortunately, probably won't be able to narrow it down beyond bone. lol We've found quite a few teeth but all badly worn. Still super fun looking for them though! Hope to see your finds next week. :)

Lissa. Nice sunrise photo. Reminded me of my daily morning ritual of beach hunting at Myrtle Beach last time I was there on vacation. Each day I tried to get out there before the "shell people" :) and look for teeth. Looks like you're still having a fun time!

Very nice lissa, good luck on this leg of your trip! :)

Every once in a great while it's not just a big rock down there!

Thanks guys and we got back to PA yesterday. I already miss my sunrise walks! I'll take some pics of my finds although all are pretty worn. I hit the jackpot on unidentifiable teeth and bones for sure... lol. ;) I sadly did not make it to the Peace. Just wasn't enough time in Melbourne. :( Next time I hope!!!

Here's another one of my sunrise photos. :)post-8801-0-08302700-1402159935_thumb.jpg
