Today I took a drive down past Kentville to Hall's Harbour to see the low tide!

As part of the Bay of Fundy they enjoy the world's highest tides.  I had my camera with

me and could not help but to grab these spectacular shots.

The tides are 53 feet in the bay of Fundy!  That's about 9 times the average tide on the other side of 
the province in Halifax; where I'm from. It's really quite a site to see the boats on their side!

Here is a view from on top of the wharf looking at the shore line.

I often regret no purchasing real estate when we used to vacation there!   Great photos, I have some by the best lobster pound I was ever lucky enough to visit.   Let me know if you have any "deals"....

Also, it is great to see the tide coming in or going out...it is quite fast.

Paul - What keeps the boats from tipping over  laying on their side when the tide is all gone ..... what is holding them upright

Kathy -The boats have strong keels. Thats usually made of lead. They are tied in such a way that they just lean over on the wharf as the tide goes down. It's really something to see.

Yvette - When the tide comes up there is something called a tidal bore. A little wave that comes rushing in. You don't want to get caught way out when the tides coming in!  It is quite somthing to see!

Paul - I thought that might be the case with thropes that are visible in the picture but was not sure ..... with a tide that rises that much the tidal bore could resemble a mini tsunami
