A nice outing  
Had a fun day yesterday. badcowboy Came over to pick me up. She took me to this cool mineral and rock shop called Black Market Minerals. They had lots of nice minerals. There was a neat little mining station outside where you could sift a bag of sand and see what minerals and fossils you got. I love that kind of thing.
Then we went to a store that sold knives and fantasy art. I hadn't expected to buy anything but they had an awesome scorpion I fell in love with. And there was a blue dragon shirt I knew Chris would like. So I did end up buying those and the lady was nice to give me a 10% discount on top of everything.

I'll write more details later on and post some of the photos I took. I need to get ready to go this morning since we're going to kayak at Weedon Island Preserve in St. Pete for the first time. I'm very excited about this.

And some interesting gaming news I know some of you like Gamma and AudeS were wondering about. Chris FINALLY got sick of Bloodborne and sold it. YAY! He got a lot of money for it and bought The Witcher 3 which does look like a way better game. I found the game in the truck when he picked me up and he told me that I was very happy about it.

I have always liked geology and have a minor degree in it. Don't remember too much but it's very interesting.

I think it's funny he tried to stick with it so long but the aggravation finally got to him. He just beat Assassin's Creed IV which was a very good and lovely game.

I like mineral stores and also those places where you can pan for minerals. There is a place near us where you can pan for gems in the creek, but I haven't found anything valuable yet in the two times I've been there. People have found emeralds and other jewels in it though.

Wow that they have random emeralds. I've never gotten anything cool from them either but it's fun to do.

There is actually a real vein of emerald in that creek, but I haven't found it. They have actual places there you can dig for stuff, and sluicing which is like most of those mining places where you sit at a bench by a running water trough and you buy a bucket of dirt that has gems in it and you sluice the water off. The mine is called the Hiddenite mine after a mineral that was first discovered there.
