Louisbourg Day 1

Sigh…I’m on vacation at my favourite vacation spot Fortress Louisbourg National Historical site. I’m volunteering on an archeaology dig, it’s my eighth year! It was an interesting day. I love being outside, digging in the dirt. The process of an archeaology excavation is soothing to my soul (and my type A personally).

The site consists of a brewery, according to  historical plans.

It was rather foggy today, good weather for digging.  image

We found a Bale Seal:

  1. Very cool! We just got home from Cape Breton, but we didn’t make it to Louisbourg this year – we went to the National Park instead. Looking forward to hearing more about your dig!
