While COVID-19 totally changed our plans for our 2020 kick off to full timing tour, we have managed to piece together what we hope to be an exciting second half of the year.
November 15 - November 25
Ramblers Rest RV Resort is located along the Myakka River in Venice. You’ll find the best of both worlds in Ramblers Rest RV Resort’s tranquil, wooded RV resort setting, where you’re still just minutes away from the hustle and bustle of Sarasota. Not only does the Myakka River run along the RV park, but Ramblers Rest RV Resort in Florida is also just minutes away from the Gulf of Mexico, where one can find shark’s teeth galore!
Hunting for fossilized shark teeth is a treasured Sarasota County pastime. The best place to find them is along the beaches of Venice, Florida. The Gulf beaches in and around Venice, Florida, hold a bountiful cache of fossilized shark teeth. Shark teeth collectors say the best places to look for the fossils are any beach accesses south of the Venice Jetty, including Casey Key and Manasota Key.
Ten million years ago, when Florida was submerged under water, the area was teeming with sharks. Over time, as the water receded giving way to land, the prehistoric sharks died – their skeletons disintegrated, but their fossilized teeth remained. The Venice coastal area, just south of Sarasota, sits on top of a fossil layer that runs 18-35 feet deep. With storms and waves, the fossils are slowly driven into the shallow waters and then up onto the beach.
