Hi June,
Here’s some more photos from the Secret Beach trip.


1) This remnant of a wooden boat had letters attached to it at one time that seem to spell Coos Bay, a harbor in Oregon. I’m going to try to find out if any boats from there were abandoned or sunk recently. It looks pretty fresh.

3) This is a fossilized/agatized clam that we found in one small area. These are much rarer and older then the typical fossil clams found in this area. c3.jpg

5) The sea anemone and friendsc5.jpg
