Rockhounding Day 1

10 Oct

A* planned a rockhounding weekend for us a month ago after we were daydreaming about boler adventuring and spending months in Yellowstone observing wildlife, geological formations, fossils and such. The problems is that we don’t own a boler nor have months or money for travel so we opted for a B&B tour in the Nova Scotia fossil region..at least we did Parrsboro, Cape d’Or and Joggins. Waaay too many shots for one post but here is a synopsis of day 1..lighthouses, hiking up hills, amazing sheer cliffs eroded by tides, fossilized tree roots, fossilized sand flats, getting lost on crazy dirt backroads, best french onion soup I ever had at an excellent restaurant in Advocate Harbour called Wild Carroway, getting lost on paved roads, hiking up more hills and a tasty Pulled Pork Quesadilla* at Bare Bones Bistro in Parrsboro…

..it is also not too often you see footlong chunks of coal sitting on the beach either..but enough rockhounding for day 1..back to the B&B for some b-charging of the batteries for day 2. B-charging..B&B…recharging, you know?……groan.

..ok. so after I put this up as a post I was messing with the app for grids and created some and am going to put up day 1 as grids per event that day..way faster than trying to get the photos in order on this phone..stupid wordpress interface. Plus I don’t have to limit the post pics as much but I worr about quality…
