Counting their treasures.
Here’s the thing about exploring a new park, a new trail, or even just a new city greenway - we don’t tire of it. And it’s not because we’re particularly outdoorsy or nature-loving - we’re really not! It’s because there’s always a treasure to hunt. And when there’s a treasure to hunt ... there’s less bickering, less squabbling, less boredom - all of which means less work for us parents, which means that everyone wins 😉🙌
Today, in between catching fish and stacking rocks, they amassed a giant pile of Indian Money. If you’re not from here, that’s the colloquial (and yes, non-PC) name for crinoid fossils that are believed to be anywhere from 250-490 *million* years old, left over from a time when Middle Tennessee was completely below warm sea water. All in all, a good way to spend a morning. @nashville_parks, you haven’t let us down yet.
