Mary Anning

Today we sampled the Mary Anning site (between Inverloch and our Flat Rocks site). Not a lot of bones, but better than yesterday. What we called site C (our third sample) is rather promising.

Lesley looks happy with her “bone of the day”

Melissa’s Mine

Today we sampled the Melissa’s Mine site near Inverloch. It was voted “Meh” by most of the small crew. We found turtle scraps and only one nice bone. But it was good to be out on the beach again!

Mike’s bone (best of the day!)

The beach is beautiful
