Wednesday, June 9: Lack of babies!

The babies didn't hatch today! However, I still got fantastic footage of the plovers, and the little guy was comfortable enough with me to go back on the nest while I was filming - making the double charlie horse and pulled back muscle from crouching perfectly still totally worth it. Here's a screenshot of my footage, for all you plover lovers out there:

After playing with plovers, I came back to the office to discover MY REPLACEMENT MIC AND HARD DRIVE FROM BANFF HAD ARRIVED. That's right, so important that it's not only caps locked, but bolded. I can now record freely with full audio without any weird feedback or the double tripod jimmy-rig.  So so so so so happy.

I spent the afternoon catching up on emails and trying to organize my footage and my schedule for the next few weeks. It's going to be super busy. I'm getting up at the crack of 2:45 with plans to be in Dalvay by 3:45 for an early morning time lapse. That's right. I have to be up in 4 hours.

I was going to stop and buy a large canteen for coffee, but decided not to.

After work, I bought baking supplies and headed to my friend Christina's, where we baked 3 cakes that will eventually turn into a shoddy rendition of a wedding cake for our -1 year anniversary party that my friend is throwing my fiance and I on Friday. It will be exactly a year from that date that we'll be walking down the aisle.

Dun dun dun dun!

Wow. Sudden realization that when you type out the wedding march, it can look like dramatic "OH NO SOMETHING'S WRONG IN THIS SCENE" music. Maybe I don't know what I'm getting into.

I was going to make the photo of the day a picture of a half eaten seal we found on the beach, but then thought, "what would my grandmother say?", gave myself a tongue lashing and thought better. Goodnight!
