A Sunny Sunday Afternoon





We spent a wonderful afternoon up on the shores of the Bay of Fundy, just 20 minutes from our new house. I'll share a few photos from the relatively warm, sunny day. I think the temperature was about 10 celsius, which is a welcome change from 0!! It's really hard to tell from a photo just how high the tides are in this bay. Apparently the tides are 5 times larger than any others in the Atlantic! In the shot above the tide is out and I was standing on the wharf about 40 feet above the rocks.
You can find more information at the Bay of Fundy Tourismwebsite.


Here I was standing at the end of the wharf looking back to the shore. Perhaps the distance is easier to calculate from this point of view. It's quite an interesting natural phenomenon.

Here are my adorable parents Marg and Bob with their sweet King Charles Cavalier Spaniel named Jake. He really loves being by the water!

And a shot of me leaning on a beautiful piece of bleached driftwood.

Hope you had a fabulous Sunday too!

Ah Kim - the first pic I've ever seen of you. The weather does look simply splendid! And yes just like Vancouver was on this sunday. Yeah I guess the tide is rather crazy.

Great pictures! The weather reminds me of when I went to visit my brother and his family in Halifax in 2003 - it was October, but we had brilliant sunshine almost the whole time. The Bay of Fundy is really amazing, isn't it?

And those are some mighty cute parents you've got there! :-)

Welcome back..

One time when I lived there we went to the Noel Shore and it was a crazy day. We walked down a rickety flight of stairs to get down to the muck and the wind came up and we could barely stand going back up the stairs.

great pics...

What always strikes me about Nova Scotia is how undeveloped the tourism is. How these are great spots to go too but finding them and exploring them is difficult.
