Exercise caution when Sara is hanging out with the first group pictured. When she visited here in SC, thing got quickly out of hand when a group of dinosaurs got together. They never even offered to replace the beer they purloined.

You are right - as soon as they learned that Sara was on her way, I noticed an increased number of secret gatherings connected with a lot of whispering, not to mention that I have already seen some high-percentage beverages disappearing in a mysterious way... I'm guessing the farewell party will be quite a thing.... :)

That completes the fossil hunting and travels around the area for Sara! I go back to work tonight, which means Sara will be headed out Monday. Sure hope Sara and everyone enjoyed our little adventures here! Thanks for reading, Jackson

Nice report and nice finds, the internal preservation of this brachiopod is amazing !

Hey, be careful with the corona or your dinosaurs will be put in quarantine.:horseshoecrab:

Today was a relaxed day for Sara - first she decided to join me for a mindfulness training online:

All the exercises presented during the session were so appealing that Sara immediately decided to put them into practise and went outdoors to relax and enjoy autumn sun and nature:

She was persuaded to come back indoors only when I mentioned the trip that we intend to do - of course each of the local cousins had their own ideas about potential locations:

After a heated discussion  Sara chose the destination of our trip :)

Stay tuned, we set off tomorrow !

They are very busy !

Not to worry...as prophylaxis, the resident dinos and myself have been administering a daily dose to build immunity. Perhaps it will not be efficacious; but we will be happy!

When you get to the quarry, there is a nice view of the valley

The quarry itself looks like this:

The dino bunch has immediately started browsing the rubble

however the majority of fossils they found are only steinkerns.

Sara (and the local cousins) enjoyed a lot beautiful weather and kept indicating fossils

We went down to the lower level:

but it didn't really change much in the aspect of finds :)

We also stopped by a nearby manor, which Sara liked a lot mainly because of the abundance of food available :)

After a bit of history and culture, we proceeded to cross the Vistula River in a manner which I quite like - namely using a little local ferry

 

image.png.23646d2c3d2bc181150b304ff870c5ca.png

 

Our next site is right at the other side of the river - it's the quarry in Kazimierz Dolny

 

image.png.9fd2886113c0bdb79600f494a447757d.png

 

As I was transporting such a VIP as Sara, we were offered the first place in a row on a ferry

The Kazimierz quarry is quite overgrown with various shrubs

 

image.png.5714cb2bafac002b2b40cb2752df8096.png

 

and also has a few levels - this time we were climbing up

image.png.e8737fcbd47ff50081e3404098d23c59.png

 

The quarry is full of orange-coloured stuff (mainly sponges), which kept attracting Sara's attention

 

image.png.052ea880ea79971abc27231cdd11a697.png

 

We kept climbing

until we got to the highest level, from which we had a beautiful view of the Vistula River and the Nasiłów quarry as well as the castle we have just visited

image.png.25bda8ac033e6ce54417a7b6aa4efa53.png

 

The top level was a bit more "uncovered"

image.png.8afa12e4da1ce9b5d622d61372c3cb09.png

and Sara insisted I should have a closer look at the strange orange stuff

We decided to take one of the "orange stuff" home, and here it is

A close-up - maybe anyone knows what that is?
