Brian is the epitome of an expert in his field. the scenery is breathtaking, being able to walk the ocean floor during low-tide is such a cool experience, and being guided by someone so knowledgeable and personable was such a treat! Thank you Brian for the best part of our trip!"

200 years ago today, October 13th, 2020, Sir William Dawson was born in Pictou Nova Scotia.
He was a brilliant man and had a remarkable life. He is the author of my favourite book, Acadian Geology, which was first printed in 1855 and is more enjoyable every time I read it.
