The treasure hunt.

Hello Blog Pals,
I bet some of you were wondering what happened to my alter ego Little Fox Archaeologist.   Don't worry I have had some interesting adventures lately.  You might remember I received a treasure map a few weeks ago.  I did some research and my digging partner Sequoia helped me search for the treasure.
First of all let me introduce my archaeology team.  We have me, Little Fox and my digging partner Sequoia.  Good thing he likes to dig and hang out at the beach because being an archaeologist digging partner only pays on commission.  He gets 2.5% of what he finds and a free lunch.

The map mentioned "Oceano Pacifico" and "Avenue U" which lead me to Seaside, Oregon.  The beach looks perfect for an archaeological dig.
This could be it.  Looks like an indentation in the sand from many years ago.  Probably the buried treasure I have been looking for.
Man, this digging is hard work.  Where is Sequoia?
More digging.  Where is my shovel?
Now that I got myself into this hole let's see if I can find the treasure.  I better call Sequoia to help me sniff out the treasure.
Still looking.  I don't think there is a treasure here.  Rats!
Could my treasure map be wrong?  Did I navigate incorrectly?  Was my compass off?  Did they change magnetic North?  So many questions to ponder on the ride home.  Now, I have to get out of this pit I dug.  
Whew.  Climbing out of the pit was hard work.  You might see Sequoia's tail in the background unfortunately he wasn't any help in extracting me from the pit.

 After our failed attempt at finding the treasure I did find this cool rock at the beach.  For some reason I don't think that it will bring much money on the secondary archaeology market but you never know.
Stay tuned readers who knows what adventures Little Fox Archaeologist (and digging partner Sequoia) will have in the future?


  1. did you get a nice bath after that archaelogical dig? and more importantly, did your roommates bring any snacks for this outing?

    1. I did get a bath recently. Although it wasn't as luxurious as your spa days. My bath involved being thrown in the washing machine.

      Snacks didn't happen. My roommate didn't bring any and it was too hot to leave Sequoia in the car alone. Sigh.

    2. Did your roommates bury you in the sand, you know, with just your head sticking out? I hear sand is good for exfoliating the skin.

  2. I thought Sequoia would be a handy companion to have along, for his digging skills and his built-in rappelling rope (a.k.a. tail). I guess it didn't go as planned, huh?...

    1. Rappelling via his tail, great idea. It did not go as planned - of course I am sure next treasure hunt/archeology dig will be more successful. I wonder if Sequoia would rather be paid in snacks and dog treats versus a % of my findings. Droopy, what do you think (you know from the dog perspective)?

    2. Hmmm...I can't speak for Sequoia, but to me, food is very motivating. :)

    3. Food is very motivating for Sequoia as well. Now that I think about it food is pretty motivating for me as well.

  3. Excellent dig. I know Daisy is an awesome digger as well, but not very judicious if I might say so. She just digs anywhere, sigh. Hmmm... I think Daisy's daddy actually has a metal detector. I will have to do a bit more research on this... maybe I could borrow it!
