The last few days have been chilly with rain on and off during the day..
Unseasonably chilly weather for this area in South Carolina.
We had to bundle up ..
Down coat, hat, gloves..
When we did we were warm and ready to..
Follow the foam…
Out to the north end of the island..
The flock of Red Knot are still present the past three evenings..
feeding at the edge of the surf..
darting around…catching dinner..
Jeff stayed back at camp to catch a few Zzs..
Not just to look at the birds..
Which is pretty incredible by the way…
The beach becomes much smaller at high tide here..
My new obsession..
I discovered that high tide is not such a great time to hunt for shark teeth.
Most of the areas I search were covered with water..
I had much better luck at low or incoming high…
Do you see it?
This is what I first see….
I look for the Y shape..
I found two this same shape..
I have not yet Identified the teeth I have collected, though I suspect I have a few Sand tiger shark teeth.
I think the one below looks like an Extinct White shark tooth..
I didn’t have much luck after finding the above tooth..
The tide pretty much covered most of the beach..
I will continue my search today..in between raindrops....
