New years day on the water

Spent the first afternoon of the new year out on the water looking for fossils on a Chesapeake tidal river. Chesapecten jeffersonius (extinct species of scallop) and other shells were abundant in different layers of the eroding shoreline. Some of these shells date back up to 8 million years ago when parts of the Chesapeake region were covered in shallow seas.
