It actually took me a while since the beach where I live is not really my "usual spot". My best finds come from about a mile North and it was way too windy to bike and my ankle is still not in shape for longer walks so I had to stay nearby. The first tooth I found was this one so I was pretty happy. I felt like the ocean was welcoming me back by giving me this gift. It was in the "swash zone"
I came upon this claw that, some poor little varmint lost, probably along with his life......I find these all the time as the birds here are pretty healthy. Actually, my beach is the only one I've ever been where the sea gulls don't beg or try to steal food. Just a few miles North of here and the sea gulls are really aggressive or "fresh" as MrPea likes to call them.
Here's another claw, well a piece of one. Obviously this claw, when intact, was much bigger. I thought it would be interesting to show how different these two are. Plus I wanted to show off the daisies I painted on my nails.
I was freezing that day. Ok I realize 50 degrees is not freezing but it is when all you've got on is flimsy jeans, a teeshirt, and a light wind breaker that does not break wind(insert laughter). So as much as I tried, when the sun started to play peek-a-boo with the clouds, I went home. I only stayed about 40 minutes but my find was pretty decent. That large piece on the right is some kind of bone fragment that I'll try to identify on my own and those two round pieces on the upper left are puffer fish jaws that I always pick up for some reason. I have about a million scallop shells but I can never resist a pretty shell or two.
It's been raining all week but when the sun comes back out, I'll be back out there for more!
