Crimson’s Creative Challenge #42 Fossil Road.

pick-up-sticks-2

Crisp, my aged companion, was excited.

Today she was determined to get to the Fossil Road as it was one of the many historical sites she wanted to explore.

It was a short ride on the Number 37 bus to Ossilton then a ten wait for the Number 37 bus to Fossilton and then a quick walk to the Fossil Road.

We were soon there and Crisp stood awestruck at the sight before her. Stretched out in front of her were the fossilized bones of a myriad of plants and a few skeletal remains of what were once mammals who inhabited the area.

Crisp was happily snapping photos when a man with a broom approached.

“Sorry about the mess, my cart overflowed, I’ll have it cleaned up in a jiffy.”

Crisp looked at him in amazement. The man then said, “If it’s the fossils you’re after there down around the next corner.”
