Looking the other way (i.e. roughly northwards) from the previous photo.

There's a train in this one!

Hello to the newcomers!

Actually Ax, I did get a bit of a giggle simply because of how empty the highway seems to be. Even Australia's busier than that!

I've been going back to places that have some sort of importance to me/my family over the past few years. I like to stand where I imagine my ancestor stood, and just take in the view. Here is one such photo shot in 2006, I mean it's beautiful in it's own right but this is the view that my forefather would have had in 1692 (minus the lighthouse I would imagine) when he landed as a lieutenant in the French Navy at Fort Louisbourg on Île Royale (now Cape Breton Island).



I stood on the pebble beach overlooking the bay and imagined his feelings and those of his comrades as they saw the English warships looming on the horizon (you can see that same lighthouse way in the distant left)...

I'm looking at pictures on the internet that I didn't take. Check out this red tide action!



That is some RUDE algae.

That even surprised me! Those pictures were taken at 10am on a Saturday morning. That spot is actually a notorious congestion spot in peak hour.

May I suggest that the next thread title stay in Canada, and refer to Dildo, Newfoundland?

Holy SHIT. Where is that? It almost looks like the Outback has turned into an ocean, doesn't it?

Having just experienced that (albeit I think a milder form) in December, I can attest that is no joke. We drove down the coast of Central Florida from Cocoa Beach, and until we got to Jupiter we couldn't get further than the parking lot without gasping for air. It's quite irritating, especially for anyone with respiratory problems like asthma or whatever...and it sticks in your chest for a good while after

Those are lovely photos, Gabe - looks like a beautiful spot. Is your heritage completely French?

Not sure where it is, but it's a red tide, caused by some toxic algae or something. I'm not sure if it's particularly rare or more common in certain areas, which I guess would be the case. I think I was reading about it as a possible explanation for the supposed red sea in the Torah (wasn't my original intention, I started out by reading about the Minoan volcanic eruption of 1600BC, but you know how Wikipedia is).

Wow, that must be really awesome. What a great thing to do. I bet that's taken you to some great places. I'd love to do something like that; unfortunately, on at least one side of my family, our history's lost in the mists of time despite our best efforts to find out something.

My current mission is to go to the sites of the Tangiwai and Hyde disasters, New Zealand's two worst railway disasters. Believe it or not, that's not because of the railway connection. I'm descended from survivors of both disasters.

Yeah, we've said before we need to go there. Let's do it.

I should actually know something about this, but grade 11 geography is now too far in the past!

But it really does look to me almost like a mixture of the sea and red earth from the Outback, rather than algae. At least the Outback around St George in Queensland anyway. Good non-existent God, that's a barren and red place.

On my father's side, yes we are Acadiens. My mother's side is Irish. Family reunions are, let's say, vibrant affairs.
