Four score and seven years ago 
our fathers brought forth on this continent 
a new nation, conceived in liberty, 
and dedicated to the proposition 
that all men are created equal.
                                                                                               Abraham Lincoln

The marsh, to him who enters it in a receptive mood, 
holds, besides mosquitoes and stagnation, melody, 
the mystery of unknown waters, 
and the sweetness of nature undisturbed by man.         
 Charles William Beebe, Log of the Sun, 1906

"My soul is full of longing

for the secret of the sea.
And the heart of the great ocean
sends a thrilling pulse through me."
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

The quest for fossils and shark's teeth
at Calvert Cliffs, Maryland

A skink

The search for shark's teeth commences.

Joe found this interesting double shark's tooth!

They found a sunken ship...I mean crate
that was tied to the pier.
