I ventured with the kids to Courtenay to go to the Palaeontology Museum and signed us up for a fossil hunt/tour along the Rutledge River, where 2 fully intact Elasamasaurus's have been found!
Not so much in love with my face however Rylie's are priceless!

Olivia was soooo excited to dig for fossils as you can see! Ya not so much, but she did collect lots of nice pebbles.
