We had a great weekend, Sarah and I had a wonderful girl's only day with lunch at the Olive Garden, lots of shopping and seeing the new Shrek in 3D.
Sunday was beach day and we headed down to Venice early. Ken had to work, but he has this special tent looking thing and with that, a beach chair and an umbrella he managed to do just that right there on the beach. Beats sitting at home!
We did not find any shark teeth on this day, but we did however find a star fish!!! It is very rare to see one in the wild nowadays, in fact, Ken hasn't seen one in 38 years!
The sand at Venice Beach is actually a lot darker than up where we live. I think this is one of the reasons it is so easy to find shark teeth fossils here, there are just more stuff in the sand! And because the sand is darker, it is a lot hotter to walk on as well!
You often see divers just off the beach here. Most off them are looking for shark teeth of the bigger kind, since they usually can bring in a few hundred dollars each.
If you don't know how to scuba dive you can just use one of these special shark teeth scoopers to sift through the bottom of the ocean (the teeth are found in the water, not on land).
We ended our nice beach day at Sharky's and then had a relaxing afternoon at home.
The Hong Kong job is ON, so I will be super busy the next 3 days.
Oh, and I discovered I must have a cavity this weekend, so I will have to go in to the dentist and have that fixed tomorrow, bummer since we are actually adding dental insurance to our health plan, but it won't come into effect until July 1.
Have a great day!
