cap breton

In July we made a hurried weekend trip to the Mabou area and stayed at a family cottage. We were too pressed for time to hike the famous trails. We had to be satisfied with a short stroll along the beach in the Mabou Coal Mines and a fossick for interesting bits of rock. Always good to take your in-house geologist along for these explorations. They can help clear up the geologic mysteries you find on the beach. And you can count on them to make stuff up if they don't know the answer. Simply attach an -assic or a -zoic on the end of any old word and voila...instant geology.
