Gloomy Sunday

21 Jul

Hey look, it’s raining! AGAIN.

le sigh.

Figures it would do it the weekend we decide to rent a car to do stuff. So much for the beach or berry picking.

In 2 hours or so, we’re leaving for here. I’ve neglected to mention to Vivian where we’re going. She’s going to crap her pants when we walk in the door.

After that, we’re going to the Joggins Fossil Center. Going there depresses me since the entire area is economically depressed, but as a woman who wanted to be a paleontologist growing up, it’s absolute coolness. The girls will love it. I cannot wait until they are old enough to seriously take to Joggins, one of the neatest things around these parts. Everytime we’ve gone it’s freaking raining, which makes fossil hunting a little, boring…

 (and oh my good FSM, there is a creationists tour of Joggins.HAHAHAHAHA…)

Basically what we’re doing is the better part of the Glooscap Trail-there are “trails” to drive in New Brunswick, PEI and Nova Scotia that are named and have specific themes-this one revolves mainly around geological finds since it’s going through fossil and geode country. It’s a pretty neat idea for day trips in the area.

So that’s our day-you doing anything interesting today?

    (Pssst! It’s Caturday.)

    Lowkey day planned here. Running down to the Farmer’s Market in a few, and then a playground or swimming. I bought several new books that I am trying to save for my trip, but will probably crack one open if I can wear Max out enough to get him to doze off this afternoon.)

    Oooh, how I wish I could go see the Bay of Fundy. God, that’s freakin’ cool to nerds like me.

    From the other coast, though, I wish you a great day!

    The first time I ever got busted for swearing I was watching documentary about the Bay-it’s incredible.

    Nerds unite! I cannot wait to explore Joggins by myself or with the girls when they’re older!
