Sara: The World Traveling Ceratopsian

@Brett Breakin' Rocks Lovely photos and it just goes to show even a 40 year old dinosaur toy can still hold the imagination of 4 year old. Plastic dinosaur are the best toys ever.   

 

I am :envy: over your shark teeth collection.  Cheers Bobby

Well, here are the best finds all cleaned up. This buddy team is really working hard to bring in the good stuff. 

 

Sara thought she had picked up a bowling ball. A femoral head from a big bone popped up instead. 

 

Whew .... that was a looooong walk with that thing on her back. Stephan helped of course.

Yes .. I am convinced that dinosaurs and the like are amazing for the wonderful and free-flowing imaginations of small children. 

 

.... speaking of .....

 

It had been some time since we last heard from Sara and Stephan . But fear not ... they have been out and about in Savannah , Georgia USA , and then Sara went on an impromptu trip to South Florida for a little R & R. 

 

Our first stop is probably a little known display tucked at the bottom of a locked filing cabinet stuck in a disused lavatory with a sign on the door saying ' Beware of Leopard.'

 

Then you have to find that filing cabinet crammed into the bowels of a large convention center here in Savannah.

 

A sad state of affairs but it is a small town with charm ... but not much science on display.

It does have quite a collection of model boats which is respectable.

.. and the fossils that best represent this area.

So .. you know. That's about it for us. Haha. Well, the dinosaurs wanted to go to the beach anyway right ?

The Florida report awaits ... but Sara will soon be on her way again. To California again ... in point of fact.

Hey Bobby, I posted some images of the as yet, unopened eggs on the Madras Ranch post.

Yes, the meg teeth have me drooling too .. just not sure I'd want to embark on any black-water dives to find them. 

 

Cheers,

Day 01 of our Florida adventure. A rendezvous with an old friend. Sara tried some lazer-tag for the first time and took out her frustrations on the enemy.

Honestly I don't blame her ... life can be stressful. But fun, if you allow it.

A quick dip in the pool with an author approved conveyance.

The 'fish' flops however are .... interesting? It is Florida after all.

Sunset dinner on the river, with a challenging game of chess.

Day 02 - We drove up to North Florida to High Springs. Thus named for the Ocala Limestone and the fresh water springs rising up from the Floridian aquifer. (which partially underlies 5 states)

My cousin lives there on a small farm called Belle Arbor and works on custom woodworking projects. He has switched to hand tools only. 

20190728_184403-2016x1134.thumb.jpg.045100e4c0103403e5b5d54a61d03cea.jpg

Sara is keen to inspect the workmanship. 

 

20190728_184515-2016x1134.thumb.jpg.a75df04b534f423e146c14ea8295fb35.jpg

... and inspect the tools of course .....

 

20190728_184433-907x1612.thumb.jpg.bc66e6ab52059918e406b07134de0dc8.jpg

 

After some fresh food from the garden it was off to the springs.

Did I mention the headwater springs of the Ichetucknee River where the water rushes up from beneath the ground were a bit chilly 72 °F (22 °C) ??

 

20190729_145324-1134x2016.thumb.jpg.503a3e33b43a1901cd66a0015b5a08cd.jpg20190729_141809-1612x907.thumb.jpg.7a2f538cfeb1660a930d09ab3590b426.jpg

 

Cold and beautiful but refreshing on a hot day ... Sara had to be careful because she doesn't float and swimming can be difficult at times without help.  Don't ask me how I know.

Day 03 on our way home we stopped at the Gainesville Natural History Museum. This small museum is quite dense with some great fossil and shell exhibits.

Sara felt quite small at times ....

The live butterfly exhibit was the kids favorite.

Sara was quite fond of the butterfly collection. One of the largest in the world.

We got home only to discover a  @caldigger trade. He is always so kind and included some micro-matrix. 

 

20190730_190015-1134x2016.thumb.jpg.26ea012b174a701adf93e99bfa728f5e.jpg

 

The kids and Sara jumped into action. She is quite good searching the matrix, this is where her size is quite the asset. 

 

Get em' Sara !

Well, Sara is off to California next. Bon Voyage Sara.

 

Safe travels....

Hello TFF members

 

Sara is enjoying her time in Northern California very much we hope. She came to work with me today at the Gateway Science Museum. Here are a few pictures of her day at the museum 

 

Sara is helping my staff member Tay Francis work on his Shark Tooth ID activity
