Time progression of the tide at Walton lighthouse - wish the photos...


We loved this! Walton is a coast town on the Minas Basin which is fed from the Bay of Fundy, home of the world's highest tides. We parked all afternoon at this nice lighthouse park, watching the tide come in. Amazing! The water rises about 30 feet or so here, as high as 54 feet one time at a place just 15 miles from here. Not so pretty as it is astounding to see. When tide is in the water is very muddy brown; when tide is out, the shore and beach are interesting but very muddy looking. We plan to see much more of this at New Brunswick's Bay of Fundy, so just stopped here for a day of rest and reading and knitting and to marvel at our first view of these huge tides.
