Our first trip to Fossil Beach and looking for fossils. We were the first car to park and second family on the beach today with many others following suit today. Nice walk down to the beach and very cool due to the trees and arriving around 8:40am. There had been a fair amount of rain the night before and it created a run off of cool fresh water to stream into the beach/Potomac. Our kids had fun playing in the sand, water and picking up shells and rocks. My husband and I looked for fossils, but as total amateurs and ill prepared we only had a few fossils and sharks teeth. I would definitely recommend taking a 1/4" sifter, shovel, sun block, bug spray, and plan on being there at low tide with some patience. It was a lot of fun. I would also highly recommend taking some water and snacks as the trek back up can be awful if you have any hangry members in your crew. Makes the walk back seem like it's much further.
