Tansy worked hard at an archaeological expedition on Quadra Island last week. She took her rain gear and her trowel, but the weather was lovely and she didn’t need the raingear….
…though the trowel came in handy when she was screening the dirt.
On the weekend she took the ferry from Quadra Island over to Campbell River on Vancouver Island for a birthday dinner.
She is always happy to be on a boat…
…and doesn’t mind inflateable boats either though she is glad not to have needed this one.
The birthday dinner took place at a Thai restaurant. Tansy thought it was delicious. The smallest person in the human family was not so sure.
Tansy was thinking she was about to get a shower, but they only took a little drink to cool their mouths off.
They examined the concrete Jelly, and Tansy told the small human about her encounters with Aurelia when she was in Haida Gwaii…
…and then they examined the wooden roots of a carved tree.
The small human enquired whether Tansy or Grandpa could stay overnight, but sadly the two of them had to return to Quadra that evening, so they went their separate ways…
…and on the way back to Quadra Tansy saw a Humpack whale!
