Long Beach Sunset
There is little enough peace in the world, so we appreciate the calm moments that we’re so fortunate to experience here. I’m very happy to share this one with you all. Our beach walks in Nova Scotia always seem to ground us and remind us of the beautiful natural elements that are always there, despite […] …

Gordon's house was on a hill overlooking this little park, behind us, & he would come down when he saw people arrive at the park. This is a tidal river, affected by the mighty Bay of Fundy. The water comes in so fast that incoming water comes in as a wave (bore), and the river fills quickly. Gordon used to make & post the bore schedule.
He loved meeting people. He was in his late 80s here, & died a few yrs after this. Such a lovely man.
Goodnight, dear friends.
I hope you all have a peaceful evening. This sunset photograph was taken from the shore, near Huntingdon's Point, I think, looking over the #BayOfFundy past Isle Haute - a misnomer, as it is a flat island, (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Isle_Haute) not high at all, and towards the New Brunswick coast. @harold
Looking also to you friends, far out west who still have the sunset to come, I hope yours is lovely.
Wandering along small country roads and past farmyards in the area leads us to really lovely vistas.

Have a great Tuesday everyone!

I posted this on the old instance, so don't want to lose it.
This is an amazing beach during shorebird end-of-summer migration. As the tide comes in, birds fattening up on the mud flats get pushed up to the shore, concentrating their numbers. There can be hundreds, thousands, hundreds of thousands depending on your timing and they are quite the thing to see in flight.
What caught my attention here were the flags. Canada/Acadia/Nova Scotia. But the 4th? Mi'kmaq Grand Council flag!
Full Moon, Nova Scotia
This view is over the Minas Basin which is part of the Bay of Fundy water. We have rich red sandy cliffs and beaches and the lowest (or highest, depending) tides in the world here. Although this was taken years ago, we do have a full supermoon tonight.
For your #Friday enjoyment, Fedi Friends. Have a great day.
Houston's Beach, #NovaScotia
Known to us as 'Strawberry Beach'.
One day in October 2012,there were strawberries as far as the eye could see on this beach on the #BayofFundy. No kidding. Where did they come from? There must have been a line of 1/2 km 18″ wide, of strawberries on the waterline. And that’s just the #beach that we could see.

Predicting serious storm surge, funneling up the #BayOfFundy with potential serious impacts on the Chignecto Isthmus

LIVE MAP and impact areas
Hurricane #Lee's forecast has not changed much at all today, still on track to bring widespread strong wind and rain to New England & Atlantic Canada. We have more specifics on the surge forecast for Canada in this evening's update.
Our Thursday AM update on #Lee includes details on impacts for Nova Scotia and New Brunswick, as well as more info on impacts in southern New England. Lee remains a significant surge threat for the Bay of Fundy and elsewhere.

The end of summer is coming faster than I want. In fact we haven't really had much of a summer at all. I think I overslept that morning! However, no doubt there are still children playing at the water's edge in #Kingsport, #NovaScotia as in this dreamy scene.
Have a lovely week, FediFriends.
The other night we cycled to Kingsport on the #MinasBasin off the Bay of Fundy. It was a lovely evening and not a long ride,but the traffic on the road we took home (and some of the way there) had more traffic than we are comfortable with.The beach was quiet and the sunset was lovely, turning to deep red streaks as we made our way home.

it's rare to see a single orca with a group of another species such as dolphins.
"It's not as much the interaction with dolphins than the fact that he's alone is interesting."
"Why this one is more related to a group of dolphins and why he doesn't go back to his family or his group is an impossible question to answer, but what it does show is the adaptability." #orca #dolphin #newbrunswick #novascotia #bayoffundy
I just happened to create a little #Travel adventure here to show you how I travel and describe things afterwards so you and others can plan decent adventures in Nova Scotia, without touristy pushed crowded destinations There's #Beaches everywhere.
Kingsport Beach in Winter
This was taken some years ago, on one of those special evenings when it was worth freezing your hands (and everything else) off to get the photo. The tide was fairly high and filled the beach with blocks of ice. The sunset tinted everything pink.

Delhaven, Nova Scotia, January
That day was brisk but bright with temperatures of -12° C (10.4° F) so we took a drive to Medford, on the way to Blomidon, not far from us.
The sky was interesting with the different layers of clouds and I liked the look of the fishing boats beside the dock. The ground was very slippery underfoot, so walking was treacherous.

Sittin' on the dock of the bay... wastin' time..
I'm shutting down my PC, you can stay up a bit longer, last one out, get the lights? Goodnight
Highest tides in the world. Pretty fast but I have better videos for showing the sudden refilling of the bay. We walked out there on low tide.

If you get right up on the hill, like I do, you can see all the way to #Blomidon and Avonport.
That's a beautiful area.. add that to your list of #MustSee places in #NovaScotia.
So, when can we expect you? #WAYCTV
And remember those WORLD'S HIGHEST TIDES?
Same area Blomidon Provincial Park
#BayOfFundy & #AnnapolisValley
For today's #WaterfallWednesday this is a little fall not far from us, on the coast of the Bay of Fundy. Depending on the tide (we have the highest and also the lowest tides in the world) the water can be lovely and deep as here, or a much smaller pool at the bottom of these cliffs.
Have a lovely Wednesday, friends!

Supermoon over the Minas Basin at Low Tide:
With the full moon tonight, this seems to be a good photograph to post.This was taken years ago as part of a GooglePlus project.
The Minas Basin on the Bay of Fundy gets the world's lowest tides and we see constant changes in the floor of the basin.

Sunset, low (very low) tide, near Kingsport, Nova Scotia
It is an amazing feeling, standing on the ocean floor (the bay, but it might as well be the ocean). Doing so at sunset is a once in a lifetime experience. The sand is mostly hard, but at times you can sink into areas, so you do have to be careful.
Sunset Medford Nova Scotia, Leap Day, 2012 - facing East
This flat area to either side of the stream would be under water at high tide, which has left a frozen coating behind as it retreated on this February evening. There is a fishing #boat just visible at the mouth of the inlet.
Enjoy your day, Fedi-Friends.

When was the last time you went to Grand Manan island?
Have you ever been? We finally just made up our mind to do that trip, check off the box.
Nice trip, ferry from NB over, and back. You should check it out?
Shaped by the Bay of Fundy, Embraced by Nature
These are the Hopewell Rocks, 70 ft rocks only completely uncovered at low tide on the Bay of Fundy. It's an amazing experience to be there at low tide. At high tide, the sea there is 52 ft deep. But when it recedes, people pepper the shore wandering around the glorious rocks, exploring the temporarily visible sea floor. It's a bucket list place to visit for sure.
