Bay of Fundy - Joggins

This is our 1st view of the Bay of Fundy with its sediment filled red water.

We were on our way to the newest Canadian UNESCO World Heritage Site....

...Joggins Fossil Cliffs. They are pounded by 2 tides a day and are erroding rapidly. Our tour guide said there are new finds on the beach after every high tide.

.
Joggins is where the first fish crawled onto the land. It was covered with huge palm trees, like present day horse tails. The image shows a fossilised palm tree being exposed. There are lots of interesting textures in the stone.
