I still haven't figured out the tides..is it ebbing or flowing? The tides in this region are some of the highest in the world...40 feet in some places. But we are on a quiet inlet from the sea called Pennamaquan River. Most of the names are derived from the native Abernaki tribes that populate the area.
Yesterday, when the rain abatted for a bit, we went to see the famous reversing falls and watched the seals body surf in the rushing torrent. It was one of the few times in recent memory that I wished I had a telephoto lens! But I was content with just sharing the moment with these playful creatures.
With a day promising to be much improved from yesterday, we are off to St. Andrews-by-the-Sea in New Brunswick, Canada today. It is an area rich in history and amazing landscapes. Many Scots settled in this area in the mid to late 1800's so I will feel right at home!
