Not bad at all

The ocean's been kind of rough lately. I couldn't get out the the beach until today when low tide is too late in the day for me to really find the good stuff. Today's find was not as I had hoped but here's the thing: It's December and I'm on the beach wearing flipflops, do you think I'm going to even think about complaining? And anyway, as you can see, I did ok for a mid-tide , foamy trek.

The best ones were these, that bigger one being a Great White. I did end up finding a small handful more than this after my apple juice break (when I took these pictures) but I was too lazy to take more pix and anyway, ya'll get the point.

These tiny ones are kind of interesting because they have a redddish color to them that my camera didn't capture well but take my word for it. When I saw them wet on the sand, they were a red-orangey color.

It had been thick-foggy all day and just before I left at 4, the sun came out for a peak and this shrimp boat sort of appeared out of no where. I thought, if I squint my eyes, it could pass for a pirate ship but alas, Johnny Depp did not show up. Oh well.

I love your beach trips, but why do sharks lose so many teeth?

I was at the beach the other day and there were 5 shrimp boats out there. Don't think I've ever seen that many and that close together.

Great find with the teeth!

Doesn't the water seem much bluer in the winter?

i LOVE looking at these pictures...i think, almost as you like collecting the teeth.

Wow, that great white is impressive - serrated for extra meat-cutting action! Ack!

Great beach picture! It's almost surreal, really...

Who needs Johnny Depp when you have a hand full of shark's teeth, flips flops and the sun peaking through the fog?
