Fossil Hunting

I'm going to take my kids fossil-hunting. I'm not exactly sure what we'll find, or, indeed, if there's anything left to be found at the place I intend to go. I went there as a little kid and we did find a few fossils, but I can't imagine having more than 25 years pass, even with erosion being what it is, that we'll find much of anything, given that this particular place is scoured quite a bit by amateur fossil-seekers. It is pretty cool, though, to find a little sea creature preserved in the rock, though "preserved sea creature" and "relatively fresh bird droppings" kind of resemble each other on the rocks out there. So we may bring some rubber gloves.

Updates will be posted here, of course.
