    So I went out this morning to look for some Eocene cephalopods.

    There were corals, echinoids, gastropods, bivalves and finally a large weathered nautilid. Pretty little geckos looked on.

    I might even be able to spot a fossil in those rocks :grin:. Good night, it seems they are everywhere and well exposed. Wonderful looking secluded beach but I don't know if I would be able to make the hike (withOUT a backpack for of treasure).
