Quiet one this weekend. Up to Frankfurt tonight for the Eintracht vs. Rostock game followed by an evening quaffing Ebbelwoi in Sachsenhausen. Off to Meiningen tomorrow with a drive through the lovely Rhone region to Kleinheiligkreuz for an Alpina meeting (alternative is the Darmstadt vs. Münster game, nah.) Sunday will be visiting the IAA (car show) in Frankfurt to prospect for next years motor.

Down to Devon, Slap the credit card with a service bill for the 350Z.

Probably pop in and see the "kids" and grand-daughter, parents, bro and family.

That'll take most of the weekend, with the travelling from and to London.

unfortunately not.

Lots of moving admin (AGAIN) crammed into a very short weekend. Thankfully this should be the last of it.

It's gotta be the fossil hunting, every time. Where do you normally go? Need any info?

Yes please. :D

Haven't done it properly since I was a kid. Another contractor was going on about Charmouth in Dorset so gave me the idea.

I need somewhere easily accessible with young kids down in Dorset(ish).

If you've got young kids you don't want to be wielding hammers (flying shrapnel more dangerous than the hammers themselves), so Charmouth at low tide is good. Go to the base of the Black Ven landslip and hunt between the rocks and in the rock pools, there are ammonites preserved in iron pyrite (fools gold). The often shown brown and white calcite ammonites, so highly prized, occur in a particular nodule band and are rarely found at beach level, also the nodules are incredibly hard. If you go to Seatown, head for the base of Golden Cap (known as 'The Corner'), there are ammonites there with a preservation that looks like honey glazed earthenware. Again, these are weathered out of the soft clays and can just be picked up. A more ambient "hunt" can be had strolling along Barton-on-Sea beach (large carpark nearby), a nice strip of beach with fossil sharks teeth to be found laying on the sand. Less eroded ones can be found on the "cliffs", which are really just a series of landslips, but watch out for mud pools.

Good luck.

Tomorrow I shall be at Lords, nervously watching Surrey vs Somerset in the CB40 final.

Not sure Surrey have the weapons to defeat Somerset on a good day, but will be a good match regardless.

Sunday, it's a bike ride or gardening, not sure yet...
