Sheila has become quite interested in looking for fossils in the past few years. In fact, she had been hoping that we could travel to Vancouver Island this spring to look for some. But the move consumed all of our time and we couldn’t go. So it was more than a little interesting to learn that the limestone rock in our area contains many fossils. We have found quite a few in the rocks around the excavation for our house. Perhaps we will post some photos of them someday.
We also learned that the Little Oaks Bluff Conservation Area, about 15 minutes away by car, is also a good place to look for them. It is also has a beautiful beach and cliff area.
And making its second appearance on this blog, a lovely cliff top oak tree.
