Be Vwery Quiet... We're hunting FOSSILS @ 09:12 am


Just a quick note before we head off... I got up this morning at quarter to seven and headed off to the Park Permit Office on Hamline Avenue North and picked up my official license to hunt dinosaurs! Okay, really, it's just a permit that allows Mason and I to pick up and dig for fossils at Lilydale Regional Park, but I've be referring to it as my dinosaur hunting permit. :-)

Mason is excited because we might find things that were alive in the Ordovician Period... and, like, he could instantly name three or four creatures alive then. (I couldn't if my life depended on it. Briachopods? Triobites? Sponges?) Anyway, even though our license doesn't allow us to start digging until 11:00 am (foolishly I thought we'd want to hang out or something before going), Mason is anxious to get there and get started. The map to the park is kind of confusing, and we need to get our list of tools together:

bottled water,
trowels,
toothbrushes,
plastic bags,
tissue paper (for the fragile peices),
magnfying glasses,
camera,
and adventure log notebook.

Pretty exciting, no? Apparently, also at this park they have a bat cave. Not like in the comicbooks, but just as cool, I think.
