I am the biggest slacker ever! I havent been going to the beach nearly as much as I should be.. and now its back to paying for parking which really annoys me. I went yesterday and didnt find diddly squat.. but luckily I have some things that I found since my last post forever ago.. Lets see what I have.. but for starters, here is a beautiful sunrise from my most favorite place, Topsail Beach!

Shark tooth!

This was a good sand dollar day! I even found one more after this picture was taken!

Just another beautiful day at my favorite spot

I really like this Great White sharks tooth

Heres another look..

And I love love love this pretty little scallop.. such a beautiful color

And some overall pics.. not a whole lot but enough to get me through!

My teeth! And a tiny little whelk

 And lastly, my little helper.. Everytime Im cleaning shells and laying them out, this little guy is always in on the action!

So thats whats been going on the past couple of months.. hopefully now that the weather is getting nicer , I will be more inclined to shell more and post more!

White Sharks Tooth!

I have been meaning and meaning to post.. I kept holding off until I found just one more cool thing.. but I was being greedy and never found that one more thing I was looking for.. but that's okay.. I have a white sharks tooth! I have never found a non fossilized sharks tooth before, so that was very exciting. I actually found two, one is all the way white and the other has a lot of dark spots. I was at my usual spot at Wrightsville Beach and just happened to be already bent over looking at something else when I accidently noticed this guy!

Exciting stuff for me! And then shortly after that I found the more darker one.. that was a good day!

You can see all the dark stuff inside of them.. They are much lighter and whiter now. Here are some other pictures from a few of my adventures.. Here was this poor starfish who was stranded.. I found him a nice spot in the water.

And then I found a sand dollar which was the first one I found after my little streak I was having the other month..

Hooray for sand dollars. Here was a nice shot I liked, courtesy of my boyfriend:

And heres a look at the things I have found recently..
And I love this baby lightening whelk.. cute stuff! 

And one last shot of my lovely white teeth.. I particularly like the super extra pointy things on each side of the teeth.. what are those called? I never know, but they are VERY sharp on that solid white one!

So that's what Ive been up to.. Its been kind of cold but today it will be in the upper sixties! I plan on making it to the beach at some point today, I would be stupid not to!
