Available to buy on…


Scott’s Bay is a tiny community on the shores of Minas Basin, in the province of Nova Scotia, Canada. The Basin is an arm of the Bay of Fundy, site of the highest tides in the world. This is mostly a fishing community, and this is the government wharf with one boat hauled up, probably for maintenance, and two more docked at the wharf.

    wow george what a stunning image – love the colours and cant wait for the tide to come in … thanks to you i was just reading about that

    Each day 100 billion tonnes of seawater flows in and out of the Bay of Fundy during one tide cycle ie more than the combined flow of the world’s freshwater rivers!

    how amazing is that – i’ve always thought the uk’s isle of Wight was ranked second but never knew to where..

    brilliant work

    :))))

  • Hi Maggie, glad you liked it..and also glad to know you read up on the Bay of Fundy. It’s in my home province, and I’m used to it I guess! In places, when the tide is out, you can walk out for a mile or so on the sea floor. Just make sure you’re back in when the tide turns, it comes in like a tsunami. Only difference is, it stops where it’s supposed to, so we don’t get any destruction.Still quite amazing to watch.

    wow george thanks for that description – it really brings it to life – who knows maybe i’ll get there one day..

  • Hope you do Maggie, as you know, Nova Scotia is New Scotland, and you’d find so much that’s very similar. I’ve met folks from Scotland who said they felt like they’d hardly left home, especially in Cape Breton Island which is very heavily Scottish descent, and so many of the same place names.
    Of course out here on the west coast, I live in a district called Ardmore, with street names like Ardmore,Glenelg,Aboyne, Inverness, Dalkeith..etc. So it’s almost like I never left Cape Breton, except we don’t get much snow.It’s March 19 and the cherry trees are all coming in blossom and the lawn really should be mowed. I’ll wait till it gets longer, no sense in doing it too soon, it just encourages the grass to grow faster.
    Hugs, sailorgirl!
