June 25, 2009: A tale of two ecosystems

Today has been rather slow and easy as the countdown begins till I fly to Halifax. I'm excited about exchanging the countryside scenery I've known all my life for the very different environment of Nova Scotia. We have lots of gum trees here, such as the one I saw today on my two walks with my dog Gus. From what I can tell at this point, the trees there are small compared to the ones in the forest regions around here in Victoria. I'm excited about observing the different wildlife species as well. I can't wait to get there and see this all for myself. I had to go into work today to do a few more things, and some of the people are already reading these blog entries. They said they will follow the blogs very closely to see what they can learn from what we write. So it's getting late. I'm going to sign off because I need to be in tip top shape to be able to do what is required from us. Feel free to conact me through the blog or through the address set up in the Alcoa Update every week.
