Re: Bay of Fundy

Great images.

The second one, in particular, gives a sense of how large the the Bay of Fundy's tidal excursion is when one compares the size of the people to the artifacts of tidal erosion on the rocks. Wow!

Thanks bluzman,

Yes, for whom does not know, is one of highest tide in the world, they say that on its highest pick can each as high as 56mt.! But at that time we were literally walking on the bottom of the...Ocean!

56 ft. Hopewell Rocks. Been there when I lived in NB in the 90's. The tides in the bay of fundy are pretty wild. Used to do alot of scuba diving there. Visibility was the pitts but the amount of life was extraordinary. Used to dive in the old sow whirlpool off Deer Island (for about 45 mins when the tide topped or bottomed out and you have a brief period of slack water). Its a beautiful province.

Great pics and thanks for bringing back some memories!

Hi Marco,

Great set of images.

As Captain, I used to take bulk ore carriers into Hantsport in the Minas Basin at the head of the Bay of Fundy. At low water there was 10ft of sand at the dock, we would dock there three hours before high water. We would load up to 20,000 tons of gypsum rock, watch the tide gauge closely and sail as soon as the tide turned.

The cargo would go to various ports on the US Eastern seaboard and be discharged direct to wallboard/Sheetrock plants. If you live in the Eastern USA it is possible that some of the cargoes I carried resides in the walls of you house. Just the sort of thing that comes into an old man’s mind as he watches house Reno programs on TV.

Over the years there was one of the ships didn’t make it out on time and had to sit on the sand for 6 hours until the tide came in again.

I lived in Nova Scotia at the time.

Best regards, take care.

Re: Bay of Fundy

I feel cheated !!

We visited that area 50+ years ago & never knew these formations were there.

Where can I get my 50 years back for a rematch. ?
