June 16, riding the Tidal Bore

Most unique and stupidest thing you can do in Nova Scotia? Ride the tidal bore. What is that you say? At low tide you climb into a zodiac with The Shubie Adventure Tour Company and head to where the Shubenacadie River meets the Bay of Fundy and wait for the tide to roll in. When you see the wall of water coming at you that is the very cool part. And then?

Your zodiac driver smashes through standing waves that are created by the tide and you get soaked by dirty silty river water. Fortunately we only signed up for the half day tour.

Then it was back in the van and off to Mactaquac Provincial Park in New Brunswick where the plan was to use the washing machines. WRONG. They were broken and blah, blah, blah.

Parked the van, had a Barbie,slapped a few mozzies then bedded down for the night.
