Rock Bottom

On our second visit to Burntcoat Head Park, we were hoping for better weather, the first visit was a rainy cloudy one. We did get a bit of color as the sky opened up for a very short time during sunset. This place was amazing to visit, with an average tide of 47.5 feet with an extreme range of 53.6 feet twice a day it makes for a very surreal experience for sure. If I would wait about 6 hours at that spot I would be about 30 or more feet underwater, hard to wrap your head around that one. The Bay of Fundy Nova Scotia.

 

Thanks for stopping!

Bay of Fundy

Standing on the bottom of the Bay of Funy, Nova Scotia. Twice each day, 160 billion tonnes of seawater flow in and out of the Bay of Fundy — more than the combined flow of the world’s freshwater rivers! The Bay of Fundy’s tides transform the shorelines, tidal flats and exposed sea bottom as they flood into the bay and its harbours and estuaries. The best place to experience the tides of the Bay of Fundy is within the World’s Highest Tides Ecozone. Located around the two upper basins of the Bay, this area has a distinct coastal geography. Tides in this coastal zone reach a peak of around 50 feet the height of a 5-storey building. This is many times higher than typical tides on the rest of the Atlantic coast! The huge tides expose the sea bottom in this shot at Burntcoat Head Park.
