Five Islands Bay of Fundy

Bay of Fundy 1Date of Stay July 15th 2014: The statistics that surround the Bay of Fundy are quite staggering.  The bay has the highest tides in the world and every 12 hours rises and falls the height of a four storey building – around 14 metres.  In fact, over 160 billion tonnes of water flow in and out of the bay at each tide which is, well, alot of water!  One of many interesting websites about the Bay of Fundy can be found here.

Due to time constraints we couldn’t make it to the tip of the bay to experience the highest tides and the possible whale sightings.  Instead, we picked out Five Islands Ocean Resort and it turned out to be a good choice. Realising we were only staying for one night and wishing to give us the best view possible he backed us a long way down the shore into a space where we had an amazing view of the bay.
The tide was out when we arrived as you can see above and would be back in at 4:30am. I snuck out at 5am and took a couple of photos and there is a panorama shot below taken with my trusty iPhone.

What a spot and we shall have to be back another time with more time!
