Things we don’t see often

September 01, 2017

It was a busy week with new things… an eclipse and kangaroos. We took the Meadows in the Sky Parkway to the mountain top of Mt. Revelstoke National Park to see the eclipse. Luckily they handed out the cool viewing glasses so nobody’s retinas were burned. It was a cool experience but did not get nearly as dark outside as I had thought.

I thought the coolest thing was that all shadows were little crescent shapes, even irregularly shaped tree shadows!

The other new thing was a visit to the Kangaroo farm near Kelowna. There’s lots of roos, wallabys and other animals to visit, and some really cute baby joeys to hold too.

This wallaby came up and hung out with me.
