  1. That's something I haven't done for years. I used to go fossil hunting as a youngster at the bottom of the white chalk cliffs near my home. I might just have a go this afternoon!

  6. Fascinating way to spend the afternoon, and the fish fossils you found are so clear, looks like they were embedded just a few weeks ago not centuries. Great WW!

    1. We wore coats when we first arrived as the temps were in the 50's. By noon, the temperature was in the 70's and it was very pleasant.

  8. wow! when I saw the title 'fossil hunt' I thought you were playing with words. I have never seen or heard anything like it. But it looks like a great fun both for finding 'treasures' and for taking photos.

  14. Cool and amazing! We have a place called Drumheller here in Alberta where I was told you can dig your own dino fossils. I've only been to the Dinosaur Museum but never actually go dig fossils. Thanks for sharing these amazing photos.

  18. Wow, so cool!! What kind of rocks are those? I've never seen anything like them. I grew up in western NY state, and we went fossil-hunting in the shale formations - not fish but ancient things like trilobites. This looks like fun!

  20. What a fabulous way to spend a day. The only fossil hunting I've ever done was around the Lyme Regis area in England. Seeing the 'ammonite graveyard' from millions of years ago, along Monmouth Beach, was a definite highlight of that holiday. Trying to get my head around such an enormous expanse of time helps put my little day to day concerns into perspective!

  21. I love fossils and fossil hunting! The year I graduated from college, my parents gave me a trip to work on a dinosaur dig in Montana. It was the neatest experience of my life. Would love to go do it again sometime.

  22. How interesting! The fossils are fascinating. I don't think we have anything like that here in Finland.
