Log/Pic 97 Venice, book sign, and Blue Ridge Pkwy.

So I went to Venice, FL to hunt for some more fossils. Above it what a shark tooth looks like underwater before I scoop it up.
Here is me with one of the 200 plus fossilized teeth I found this year. Note the poor visibility-characteristic to Florida's west coast. Although I find so many teeth, only on one of these dives in the last 20 years have I ever seen a shark-and it was three of them...and they were bull sharks!
This is a frog fish. Apparently it is rare. I was just as shocked to find a small sea-horse on a dive out here years back-who knew?
This summer I had a second book signing. This was in NC. Here I am signing my book to donate to the local library. Below I am presenting to the librarian. My uncle and aunt are to my right.
Below I am showing the illustration from the chapter I am about to read.

I also drove back through the Smoky and blue Ridge Mountains. I started at Tallulah Gorge, a place I had climbed 18 years earlier with Dan from Dunwoody (GA).
