Fossil Hunting on Yorkshires Dinosaur Coast by Elliot Withers

 

Spent the end of August Bank Holiday weekend in the village  of  Alne,  North Yorkshire  11 miles  from  York for Mum, 65 miles from Whitby for me and Dad. Now two things to remember Dad noted for next time, Park&Ride on a Bank Holiday & Tide Times  we forgot both. Mum was pleased shopping in York , but for Dad & I the Dinosaur Coast was all that mattered. Sunday morning  rushed out of our camping pod , in the car straight into Whitby but as Dads notes say , couldn’t park anywhere . No  problem though Sandsend is down the road , Dad said lets try there, again same problem couldn’t park.

Note Pad Second Point Explained..!

TIDE TIMES: the reminder Dad scribbled in his notes , now due to the early morning charge to Whitby & then onto Sandsend we decided  to try Saltwick Bay.Once the tide is out, searching to the right hand side ( past the ship wreck) some good fossils can be found. We where there to early though , the tide was in & restricting our search for fossils but I didn’t mind I had a great day. Got soaking wet from the sea had to change my clothes twice, cracked my first nodule & found an ammonite inside, & spotted a seal watching me digging . I shall be back.
