The Tidal Bore

Riding the Tidal Bore

Day 28, July 9 - Urbania, NS - 0 Miles, 2539.9 For the Trip

Last night we walked to the viewing platform for the Tidal Bore & while we were there at the wrong time for the "wall of water" we did see a pair of eagles. Fairly dark & a quick fly by so the images are not all that good, but it was great to watch.

We decided to stay another day here at the Wide Open Wilderness Family Campground so we could actually watch the Tidal Bore take place. There really is a wall of water coming up the river, although it is only about 1' to 11/2' high. First you hear it then you see it coming across the river. Very different to see the river running backwards. A group of Zodiacks was giving people rides in the waves created by the bore. We also had a couple more fly bys of the eagles, but still nothing to write home about.

After that it was back to the campsite to do pretty much nothing for the rest of the afternoon. Don & Anne are "zooming" back to the states in the morning - I plan to take my time but do plan to head off Nova Scotia in a day or two. I'm not sure how I'll get back to Oswego - I'd like to see more of the Maine coast, but it is getting towards the time where US 1 getts very crowded. I may cut across the state more the way I came. We'll see.

We are going to try one of the freeze dried meals I received samples of using an ad from Trailer Life. While it looked like they were individual meals, the packages are for 4 so it makes sense to try one while there are still 3 of us. Tonight is going to be "Cheesy Chicken Rice Casserole" with an added chicken breast, some Broccoli, and a bottle of Fundy Tide white wine.

Until tomorrow -
