What a wild week! I spent three days in Vancouver, B.C. with 16 fifth graders and we had a wonderful time. We took the train. The kids planned where we would go, organized some meals, figured out how to get around and prepared history “presentations” on different areas of the city. The best part for me was spending the night at The Vancouver Aquarium and sleeping next to the Beluga habitat. There were three of them in the tank, a grandma, a mom and a 11 month old baby named Tiqa. It was amazing, I hardly slept, neither did the kids. If you get to Vancouver the aquarium is worth a visit as is beautiful Stanley Park, where it is located.
We also visited the Museum of Anthropology at the University of British Columbia, another of my favorite places.
The trip has thrown off my writing for NaPoWriMo and my book reviews. I’m going to work on some poems this evening.
I finished reading Someone Knows My Name and a graphic novel, Laika, which I will try and review by mid-week. I am reading The Forever War. This is an astounding book, I am recommending it to several friends and will try and review it when I’m done. I’m just not sure I know how.
What are you reading? Have a wonderful week! To find out about Sunday Salon go here.
