Low Tide

Low Tide

I took a drive out to St. Martin’s (New Brunswick, not the Carribean unfortunately) last weekend to try and see a little more maritime scenery than is available in Saint John. St. Martin is on the Bay of Fundy which is famous for having the highest tides in the world. I got there around low tide, and was amazed to see the boats were completely out of the water. At high tide they would be floating along side the docks. The Bay of Fundy apparently has areas with 50 foot tides. That is quite amazing.

The water shown in this image is actually a small river. I was standing on the bank of the river with the ocean about 100 meters behind me as I took the photo. If it were high tide, I’d have been in about 10 feet of water!
