Maritime Memories

Nova Scotia June 2007
Here are some pictures of our trip. We traveled from NOva Scotia to PEI. It's called the peaceful island and it is indeed.
New Brunswick June 07
These pictures were taken at Hopewell Rock in New Brunswick in the Bay of Fundy. This is a very unique place as when the tides come in there is a 50 foot difference between low tide and high tide. So at the low tide you will see upswalking on the ocean floor between these very unique ricks that have been worn away over the centuries by the tides. Then it is followed by a picture of the high tide in the same place and people are kayaking during high tide. It is a beautiful area.

Fishing for Lobster

This is the land of the lobster. They fish for them with these lobster traps. The fisherman make 6 figure incomes fishing for lobster for 6 weeks out of the year...

We are going to a lobster feast tomorrow night. Looking forward to our first taste of fresh Lobster from NS. We've been eating seafood everyday since we've been here. Delicious shrimp, mussels, haddock, and especially scallops!! Yum!!

Beautiful Maritimes - Peggy's cove

Only 40 people live in this community and they are all involved in the fishing industry. Live moves a lot slower here and it is a beautiful place to visit.
