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.
We found a Bale Seal:
Stay tuned for Day two!
My second and last day was great. I wish I could stay longer but my job calls. We found some interesting artifacts today. Wood, copper, ceramics and a few mysteries. I’ll have to wait until the analysis happens before I can find out the whole story. With every season there always arises a new question, it keeps you going until the next digging season comes. Here are some photos.
Yesterday was perfect. We found a rainbow at the end.
It’s a peaceful place along the North Shore where we are excavating. Reuniting with the people and places that are familiar now on my seventh season here is something I always look forward to. Being with like minded folks who share this love of history and piecing together the past is something I need like air. It recharges my batteries and clears away the cobwebs from my brain. Here are a few photos from today’s events.
I’m hiking a few trails this morning before my Archaeology Primer. It’s overcast but the views are beautiful as always. Already got caught in a rain shower and got my feet wet. Perfect:)
