This boy found some sea plants (looks like a type of kelp) and what might be a small squid.
This boy found some scallop shells, sea lilies stems, and pipi like shellfish, all in one rock.
Hubby found three different types of shellfish, plus a stone that has been polished and moved by a glacier.
It is hard to imagine that the Hunter Valley had everything happen to it at one stage or other, but it has. It’s been under water, covered with glacial ice, and by ash and lava from nearby volcanoes.
Next, we will have a look at the remnants of an old volcano.
