major quake in E. Canada

Most folks don't know that there was a major earthquake in eastern Canada a couple hundred years ago. It was so severe, in fact, that the area which we now call Labrador and Newfoundland actually split away from the mainland and floated off into the Atlantic.

But of course, nowadays Labrador is right back where it belongs, snug against the mainland with nary a crack to be seen, while Newfoundland remains an island province. How could that be, you wonder? Well, you see, one of the early French settlers in that region happened to raise several.....

...you may have guessed it....

...he owned several (excellent and hearty, I might add)...

...Labrador retrievers.

Hi: Mike Magee... Does that leave the Newfoundland Dog to tread water?

Labrador's geology is really an untouched beauty, not unlike the northern parts of most of Canada's provinces, even relatively populated places like Nova Scotia.

The wonder of places like Newfoundland, Labrador and Northern Quebec is the quiet, un-populated nature of the land.

It is entirely possible that Newfoundland was once connected to Labrador when sea level was 100's of feet lower. At one time eastern Newfoundland was part of Europe. The former connection point to Europe is defined by a U-shaped valley . You can stand in that valley and see the entire connection point. There's a place where you can stand in eastern Newfoundland and look across the entire connection.

The island

It was the Newfoundland dogs that towed us back out to sea. Thank God we're surrounded by water.....
Merry Christmas everyone from Rocky Bayou State Park in Niceville, Florida. It is a beautiful Christmas song from the movie Holiday Inn and I love to hear it but this will not be a white Christmas for me and I can handle that. Take care... Scouter Dave.

Unhappy The Halifax Explosion

Well you do know that Halifax suffered an explosion Dec 6, 1917.

It will soon be the 100th anniversary.

A frightening post, had me concerned for a moment there.. My Floridian son is up in Montreal visiting his girlfriend's parents over the holidays. He sent me an iPhone photo of him shoveling out their driveway. I bet that got him a point of two!
