Three of Canada's Maritime Provinces

Above and below, just off the Cabot Trail in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia.

Above, even a low Bay of Fundy tide can be seen rushing upriver in Truro, Nova Scotia. Below, the lovely, peaceful river before the tidal bore caused it to flow upstream.

Above, the College of Piping and Celtic Peforming Arts in Summerside, Prince Edward Island. Below, the unfittie is about to enjoy her first PEI lobster.
Below, the Hopewell Rocks in New Brunswick, sculpted by wind and water. People (not the unfittie) can walk out to the rocks at low tide if they are careful not to get stranded when the famous Bay of Fundy tide comes roaring in.
Below, I tried to set the hotel alarm clock when staying in Moncton, New Brunswick, but didn't do something right, because I overslept by a few minutes and missed seeing the tidal bore at the foot of King Street. There's always something to photograph in the Maritimes, however. Now that I've almost finished "doing" NB, PEI and NS, it's back home soon to nag my husband about going to Newfoundland together, not this year, but maybe next.

Love the New Brunswick rock formations and that adorable (heritage?) building with the red roof, Kay. Each of your Maritime pictures is fantastic, including the one of you. Looks like you’re having a great time! Also, really like the “floating fog” from your last post. :)
