Took the morning to drive up to Joggins, the fossil site. A mere half hour away, on the other coast from here. The combination of colours in the landscape excite me no end. The ochre of the dead grasses, the wine of willow shrubs; the dark green of the pine trees interrupted by by young white birches and then the many subtle shades of a grey wintersky.
Joggins Fossil Interpretive Center was closed, of course. I walked to the beach but did not actually look very hard to find a way to walk on the beach. It was cold, drizzly and the tide was fairly high. Better to stay on higher ground and take pictures. I'll come back soon.
