It has been quite a while since Pete and I ventured out on our bicycles so we made the most of the last few days of summery weather before Autumn really sets in – oh heavens, I am not looking forward to winter – here’s hoping it’s a quick and mild one. Anyhoo, I digress…
We decided to take a ride to the beach down the road from home again, except this time, once we reached the beach we locked our bikes up at the pump house instead of riding along the beach. I think this was more for my advantage as I battle a tad in the soft sand due to my slight unfit state.
We were thrilled to come across another wonderful whale bone. There seems to be whale bones all over the beach – quite far spread so I can only assume them to be from different whales. The ones we have found so far are really weathered so must be quite old.
We were determined to bring this one home with so dug it from its sandy grave but alas at 12 feet long it is WAY to heavy. We had great plans of dragging it along the sand and somehow brining it home behind our bicycles. It would take at least 3 men to lift so there went plan A. We are no longer allowed to take vehicles onto the beach so plan B also went out the window. We are still working on plan C. Any ideas?
We were able to bring home an inner (middle) ear bone, spinal disks and other spinal bones which I will photograph to share with you.
