Hunting for sea monsters!

It might be a terrible winter for the ski resorts, but the gorgeous weather meant it was a perfect day to play at the beach!

I signed up to host our Preschool in the Woods play group at the beach this week. After our opening song, I read a book called Stone Girl Bone Girl,
about a little girl named Mary Anning, who discovered a “sea monster” fossil in Lyme Regis in the early 1800’s, when she was only 12. It turned out to be the first Ichthyosaur fossil, and she went on to discover many more. I never had the dinosaur bug as a kid, but Miss H sure has it. It is unbelievable how difficult it is to find girly dinosaur stuff!

As soon as the story was over, the kids charged off to find some sea monsters in the dunes. They did not discover any new fossils, but they did find this:

So it was a little while before we were ready to come home!
