It is early Sunday morning — waaay early. I am going to bed in just a few moments. If all goes as planned, when I wake in the morning I will shower, we will toss the suitcases in the car, and head for the ferry.
It is time once again to trek off to Seaweed Camp. Some of you have been with me long enough that you know all about Seaweed Camp. It is a field trip to Botanical Beach (Juan de Fuca Provincial Park) in British Columbia. We will be camping not too far from Port Renfrew. The first time I went on this field trip I had a lovely time. The second time I went it rained the entire time we were there — in fact we left early because a couple of the tents flooded and we had students with nowhere to sleep. This time the weather pixies have cheerfully promised us rain, rain and more rain. Oh joy.
This year, unlike last year, I own boots and a rubber coat. Not only that, Amoeba and I will have our own tent (not borrowed) and our own car. Even if it rains I should only be half as miserable as I was last year – -which will be a huge improvement.
See you Tuesday!
