  Joggins Beach
by easterntrekker

The shores of the bay of Fundy are world renowned . Home to the highest tides in the world, the Bay of Fundy is a 270km (170 mile long) ocean bay that stretches between the provinces of New Brunswick and Nova Scotia on Canada's east coast.There are approximately two high tides and two low tides within a 24-hour period in the Bay of Fundy. You can expect to see at least one high and one low tide during daylight hours. The tide does not come in with a roar or wall of water. The water flows across the beach, rising until the vast expanse of mud and gravel is once again under the sea. It is a good idea to check the tide tables before heading to the beach area. http://www.tides.gc.ca/cgi-bin/tide-shc.cgi?queryType=showFrameset&zone=30&language=english®ion=5&stnnum=215

    I'm always fascinated by places with tides (never having lived in such a place). Here it would be great to observe the highest tides in the world.
