Blue Rock Harbor

The Canadian adventure continues! Up and at’em early this morning and the first stop was Blue Rock, a tiny coastal village that looks just like a picture postcard.  Next stop was Liverpool where I stopped at the Regional Cultural Center to see the Outhouse Museum.  It was entertaining, but more important,   a once in a lifetime opportunity. : )  Then a quick stop to see the Fort  Point Lighthouse and back on the road.

Cutting across the center of the province, my last destination of the day was Digby.  Crossing  Nova Scotia from Liverpool to Digby took about two  hours and the scenery was  trees.  Maybe a house dotted here or there but no  towns, gas stations or restaurants and very few  cars .   Lots of trees.  Happliy, the maple trees  were dressed with  some reds and yellows which nicely complimented  the evergreens.

Once  at Digby,  I was overjoyed to see it was  low tide.  Digby sits on the coast of the  Bay of Fundy where there are extreme tides every six  hours.  You will see in my photos that the water was so low that the scallop boats moared  in the  harbor were sitting in only  3   feet of water. High tide, when it arrives, will be 26 feet.   At  high tide, the fisherman can walk directly onto their boats from the dock. BTW,  Digby is also has the  world’s largest scallop fleet.   When it comes to seafood, scallops is my favorite, so  guess what I had for dinner?

Tune in tomorrow – I board the ferry and, 3 hours later, arrive at  St. John, New Brunswick to  explore the Bay of Fundy part of my adventure!
