On the first day of Leg 3, our participants explored Baie-Comeau, which included a visit to the 10,000 year old Seashell Valley. Layers and layers of broken and intact seashells lie in this valley, which is in the middle of a dense forest. The valley is the largest seashell deposit in the world. The valley was discovered in 1917, when telephone lines were being installed a few kilometres away. What a unique way to begin leg 3! #CanadaC3 #Canada150 #baieComeau #SeashellValley #ExploreQuebec #Quebec #Seashells photo: Martin Lipman
