We left PEI, re-entered New Brunswick and now we are in Nova Scotia! First we headed down to Parrsboro to the Fundy Geological Museum.
 We arrived there near closing (because Cooper was driving) the people said it was okay to go through and look for free as long as we didn't touch the bones. It was very educational and the displays were well done (even Cooper could understand it).  They had some of the fossils of the oldest dinosaur found in Canada. One of the technicians there showed us a small fossil that she had been working on. If was the bottom jawbone of a very small reptile. After leaving the museum we headed down a windy coastal route and ended up at Cape d'Or. The tide was out so Cooper and I decided to take a walk along the shoreline to see what we could find. We found a lot of interesting stones and I found a piece of a rib bone from a whale. I made Cooper make the same promise to me as he made to the girl at the museum "Don't touch the bones". 
 It's getting late now and we are parked right next to a lighthouse for the night!
