Long Description:
Marine Biologist = (6274632) = W 063°14.632' - Nova Scotia, Canada

Our username is Marine Biologist. All five letters of Marine and the "B" in Biologist were used. So our Username converts to W 062°74.632'. However, "74" is larger than "60" minutes so we added "1" to the degrees and subtracted 60 from the minutes. This gave us 063°14.632'.

These coordinates, N44°44.703' W 063°14.632', are found along Route 7 (Marine Drive) in Head of Chezzetcook, Nova Scotia, Canada. According to Wikipedia, "Head of Chezzetcook is a community on the Eastern Shore Marine Drive route of Halifax Regional Municipality in Nova Scotia. The Head of Chezzetcook area begins at the intersections of routes 7 and 207, near Porters Lake and West Chezzetcook, and continues along the Marine Drive to Gaetz Brook. Head of Chezzetcook is a short commute to Downtown Halifax at 29.52 kilometers; and in its heyday was a major port of call for ships delivering supplies from the city to local gold miners and early settlers. A vista of the sea marks the Head of Chezzetcook Inlet, for which the Chezzetcooks are named; and a fork in the road for both East Chezzetcook and Conrod Settlement."
