Man, I have been slacking on this! I've had quite the busy summer though. I spent a month at my most favoritest place, Topsail Island. During that time I did a lot of shelling.. My main goal was to find a ton of shark teeth.. and I think I succeeded! By the end of my trip and searching all over, I ended up with 942 teeth! There were plenty of small ones but I found some real nice ones too! Besides that, I found tons of broken moon snail shells to add to my bowl of swirlies, scallops, baby ears and I even found a wentletrap which I've always wanted to find! Still no complete scotch bonnet but I found several busted ones.. Im getting closer to a complete one! Here's a look at my finds from the first two weeks of my trip! I had boat access during that time so I was able to find a significant amount more than the last two weeks of my stay.
|Sooo many shark teeth. The shark tooth hunting this year was the best its ever been! Significantly better than Wrightsville Beach!|
|Shark teeth & sand dollars!|

Not too shabby if I do say so myself!
After my third week and doing the majority of my hunting on the sound side I had some different stuff.. like lots of coral bits, worm shells pieces and some pen shells. Also A LOT of baby ears. I was finding them left and right! Here is a gander at what I got:
|These were some of my favorite little finds, I really liked these two worm shells and two baby sea urchin skeletons.. and My Wentletrap, isnt he cute?!|
Thats all for now until I find my other pictures!
