Amazing Tides

I've been hearing about the tides in the Bay of Fundy since I was a kid - this area was one of Grandpa Nadeau's favorite places, and when you see the tides in action they truly are amazing! Most of the roads I've been traveling in New Brunswick have meandered along the coast so I've had some great views, but in Saint John I actually saw the tides in action - at the Reversing Falls and it was pretty impressive.

 

Next up was Cape Enragé De Fundy - this lighthouse has warned Mariners since 1840 of the treacherous mix of the tide, shear cliffs and undersea mountains in this remote place.

 

Two days later I stopped at the Hopewell Rocks - this place on the Bay of Fundy, claims the "World's Highest Tides" and some pretty amazing rocks to go along with all the water moving in and out.

  1. Even the tides "Take The Long Way". This was one place I wanted to visit. Next time. Do they allow Kayaks?
