Nova Scotia - Bay of Fundy

I don't know what I was expecting to see at the Bay of Fundy.  I know the tides there are tremendous, coming in and going out at record times and in such vast quantities.  But it's hard to imagine this when you are only there for a short time and the tide is out.

The Flowerpot Rocks, however, are amazing.  We climbed down the cliff to the beach and looking up at the size of these rocks, realizing that in a few hours they would almost be submersed is hard to imagine.

It can be dangerous on the beach when the tide comes in.  We were told that if we stood at the water's edge the tide would cover our shoes in a matter of minutes.  This sign says it all.

The water reaches the top of the rocks!

Look how small we are!

I really want to go back and stay a while and witness the full event.  All I can say is amazing!

Our next stop...Prince Edward Island, locally known as PEI, and a visit to Anne of Green Gables.

                   Until next time ~



  1. Oh yes, you must return and witness these tides! Unbelievable! We were almost caught a number of times when the tide came rushing in and we had to hurry back to land.
    You may have heard that they (power/electrical companies) are trying to harness the energy of the tides for hydro-elect power generation. We will see.

    1. I would love to have seen that. Was very glad we got to walk on the beach though:-) Just another awesome place that I want to return to.
