Take the Self Guided Fundy Eco Tour

Take the Self Guided Fundy Eco Tour

I mean a great Nova Scotia attraction years ago, with branded signage and brochures.These days you may find the odd beat up sign, but you would look long and hard to find brochures/maps.

As I studied the old…

Flounder Fishing in the Minas Basin

Flounder Fishing in the Minas Basin

Six Ways to Experience the Bay of Fundy Tides

Burntcoat Head Park

Burntcoat Head Park

One of the spots I love  to poke around  is Burntcoat Head  Park in Noel, Hants County. This park is just another of the special gifts the Bay of Fundy offers up for us. Known world wide for having the highest tides on earth, Burntcoat Head entered the Guinness Books of World Records in 1975 as having that designation. However,other communities communities along the Bay disputed the fact  and even Ungava Bay in Northern Quebec wanted to lay claim to…

The Mighty Bay of Fundy

The Mighty Bay of Fundy

Nova Scotia’s Mighty Bay of Fundy:  Nova Scotia, My Heart and My Home   Years ago, as a newly wed, my husband was offered an interview with a company in British Columbia. That interview hinted at wonderful opportunities and a good life. How did I take this exciting news? I cried. I cried for days at the very thought of moving from Nova Scotia.
