Babies at Renaissance Market!

Just look at that! I dont have a clearer picture right now as I dont to distrub the parents. We have five baby birds in the nest now! They are about 6 days old in this picture. The birds live in the part of the house where the computer is so I get to hear their calls all day. With 5 babies we may have to get another bird cage! Their names are (not that we'll be able to tell who is who later).. Hercules, Nemo, Beaker, Bunsen Honeydew and Cecile. Oh the parents are Emenem and Lady bird. Posted by Hello

Kyanite Mine

Here I am at the Kyanite mine in Sudbury Ontario. It's located on the east side of Wahnapatae and you do need permission from Falconbridge to visit. Kyanite is easier to find when you have a hammer and safety glasses.. Blame it on the heat, we forgot to bring it with us.

Treasures found at the Kyanite Mine

Treasures from the Kyanite Mine in Sudbury Ontario. We found Kyanite, Garnets and Byatite. This is a picture of some of the nicer pieces that we found. The blue stones that look rectangular are Kyanite. Posted by Hello

Hammer Time!

Hey, one of us got lucky and managed to borrow a hammer for a while. This is one of the larger stones, but in this one we only found Garnets. Posted by Hello

More Hammers!

Hey Rob! Looking to persuade rocks to come home with us with my dad's hammer might not be a good idea when the wind is kicking up this good! Posted by Hello
