Watery Wednesday

Posted by Lorac Wednesday, 28 October 2009

Watery Wednesday
I am out of ideas today. A little worn out I think! Just finished working 14 days in a row.
I have always liked the Watery Wednesday theme so today , I will indulge.

On a working trip to Nova Scotia I manged to have a day off with my working partner by driving longer hours and switching off drivers. This way we arrived late on Saturday and had the Sunday to our selves before starting work on Monday. Only having one day we decided to check out the Bay of Fundy, a World Heritage UNESCO Site. We queried the locals as to a good time to go as the tides are quite amazing and apparently the longest tides in the world. Bay of Fundy is a 270 km (170 mile) long ocean bay that stretches between the provinces of New Brunswick and Nova Scotia on Canada's east coast. Each day 100 billion tonnes of seawater flows in and out of the Bay of Fundy during one tide cycle more than the combined flow of the world’s freshwater rivers! This is also in February so a little on the chilly side as well!

There was a wonderful set of stairs for walking down to the bay. Well built and attractive to the surroundings. Flowing underneath and then beside it was a little bubbling stream with the ancient rock beneath it.


Originating from this well built causeway under the road and being fed by a stream from the fields behind it. I love the winter brown grasses and the leafless bush showing tans and browns of winter.The grey slate under the water adds to the effect.



The fishing boats are tied at the dock. As the tide goes out they sit on the ocean floor. It was a beautiful day at minus 15 Celsius! It gives the look of being late in the day but you can see the sun is coming up. In February the sun isn't very strong in warmth or light.




Just slightly over to left, it gives a better view of the bay and the tide level.



This little slip of a boat launch is way out from the waters edge at this time!



On the cliffs, an ice cascade, formed by the cold and the windswept area is coloured by the presence of red clay.

  6. Thanks for these beautiful views of the Bay of Fundy. I would certainly like to see it in person some day, but perhaps sometime other than February!
