    Hock Cliff

    Post  sal7373 on Wed Mar 14, 2012 8:22 pm

    Visited Hock on Sunday 11th March. It was hard going because of the amount of mud the big tides have deposited on the beach. Found the usual Crinoids, pyritised ammos, and plenty of Gryphaea, including this rather large one! Also was very pleased to find this vert the minute I stepped on the beach Very Happy

    where the hell is hock? some lovely ammonites in there, cant beat a perfect fools gols ammonite, my friends think that i make them in a factory in my back garden lol! a random subject but does anyone ever find that if they take a newbie on a hunt they always find something really good and although pleased for them i also get very jelous as they always find something that i havent got in my collection, eg a girl i took to charmouth (i was a foster carer for 6 years)found a nice chunk of rock about the size of a potato and there were loads of brittlestars in it perfectly preserved like you would see in a fossil shop, another trip a lad found a massive ammonite that was a mantlepiece job and another lad found a really nice devils toenail, a really perfect shop condition jobbie! bah humbug! any one else have this problem? am going to charmouth next sunday with my daughter (not grandaughter lol!) and i bet she finds something that i would love in my collection!!!!! afro

    It's called 'Beginners' luck', or 'Curse of the Newbie', and it's one of the few givens. Another is if you fall over you will fall over onto/right next to a fossil. Also, when you have lunch you will always sit down on a fossil.
