I *HEART* Joggins Fossil Cliffs …

… and Nova Scotia, and tide lines of all sorts, and most especially days spent exploring nature with my beloved. This fossilized impression of stigmaria bark from the Carboniferous period says it all.

This photograph was taken along the tide line at Joggins Fossil Cliffs. Rather than a sand, or even small pebble tide line, Joggins is mostly a jumble of rocks, with sand and smaller rocks emerging at low tide. It makes walking the tide line a bit of a challenge, but the reward of watching one’s step comes with finding innumerable fossils along the walk.

NOTE: fossil was misidentified yesterday as lepidodendron. Corrected today as stigmaria.
