It’s back!!! After two years of cancellations the annual run between Soley’s Cove and Five Islands is back! “Not Since Moses” 5 k 8 km Fun Runs took place earlier today. The call to volunteer went out to the Fundy GeoPark Seniors last month. We joined the GeoPark geologist Caleb Grant on Friday as well as Summer Student GeoPark Seniors Coordinator Cassie Mollins for the pre-run orientation st 8 a.m. today. Our official mission: keeping the protected areas of the endangered Mud Piddock Clams out of bounds for the runners.
Our positions across from Moose Island revealed eye-catching subjects while I waited for the runners to pass us.
At my back a personal favourite landmark first encountered in 2018 while camping at Five Islands Provincial Park: The Old Wife Rock and Old Wife Formation never disappoint! The rain intensified about half way through the race but watching runners pass and cheering them on took my mind off the liquid sunshine.
It was a rainy morning well spent doing our part to protect the humble Mud Piddock. The clouds are getting lighter! Sunday Blessings, Anna
