The plan had been to go for a bike ride this afternoon, perhaps somewhere in the vicinity of a brass cap. However, the sunny warm weather turned cloudy, windy, cooler and it started to rain as we left home. It seemed our beautiful weekend weather was already descending towards the cold weekday forecast.
But we forged on. As we pulled into the area a whole flock of robins took to the air. Hopefully, they'll feel inclined to hang around awhile longer. While Mrs Shark focused on finding ground zero, Mr Shark scanned a wider area and pointed out a divot a couple of feet away from Mrs Shark. That's what we're looking for! The cap was covered in a shallow layer of dirt but a search for the trowel only produced the memory that it was at home where Mrs Shark had been using it for more traditional uses. A plastic spoon proved a workable substitute. The rain was light here but we were quite glad for our jackets due to the wind on this exposed hilltop.
Thanks for the cap!
