Easter Fossil Hunt

Since our girls are 20 and 15, we haven't had to do the Easter bunny egg hunt for years. No pink and blue dyed fingertips. No hiding them a zillion times after the initial hunt. We'll eventually get to enjoy that again with grandchildren. Until then, we have the opportunity to do whatever strikes our fancy for Easter.

This year we're doing something unique. I just ordered each of the items above - hammer, chisel and safety glasses - because we're spending Easter afternoon fossil hunting on England's Jurassic Coast in Charmouth. I'd love for us to find some lovely fossils we'd be able to display. What a great memento not only for Easter 2016, but also for our time spent living abroad. As you can see in the pic below, I've got high hopes. Isn't it wonderful? I'll let you know if we hunt down anything cool, other than quality family time spent together plus a sore back from bending and stooping for several hours.
