Years and Years ago…

How many we don’t know for certain. In the coal age…

These exposed layers of rock reveal the world’s most complete fossil record of life in the “Coal Age” when lush forests covered Joggins on the coast of Nova Scotia.

The swamp forests produced massive quantities of organic matter that, over years, created the coal deposits for which this period of history is named. Embedded in 15 kilometres of accessible coastal cliffs, rare fossils reveal details of life in the “Coal Age”.

The tide was coming in when we visited so we had a little time to explore the beach and look for fossils.

Adventure For Two

I am from Bridgewater, Nova Scotia, Canada and I'm back from traveling with my husband on an expat assignment to foreign lands. 2011-2012 we were in Shenyang, China. Spring 2012- Spring 2013 we were in Resende,RJ Brazil then back to Shenyang, China in July 2013 until the end of July 2014. Expat life WAS amazing! Adventure abounds no matter where we travel to. We really enjoyed the amazing opportunity to live and experience culture and tradition in these places. BUT now we are finished and adjusting to life in our small town in Canada. Our days of travel and adventure are not over.
