Back to our field trip yesterday...we visited the fossil cliffs at nearby Joggins (the site of the pheasant which left us so excited). There is a big visitor center there, and I confess, we didn't go in. I did, however, take some photos there.
The first thing I saw when I drove in the parking lot was this sign. I just love Canada. They are so forward thinking and conscientious. There was also a wind generator on the other side of the parking lot that I assume is used to help support the visitor center. Meanwhile, back in the U.S., we're busy dumping more money into an automobile industry which was built around the oil industry. I promise to stop there.
Along the way, I saw farmhouses and barns. I love them all. I always wanted to live in an old house. Victorian would have been wonderful, Craftsman ditto, farmhouse divine...I'm pretty easy. Just something with a big old porch and the feeling that there is a lot of history and love in those walls.
