Not so wonder-ful Bay of Fundy?

Ewwww, a panel of judges has conferred and despite the Bay of Fundy placing third among Canadians in popular vote, oddly we didn't actually made the final list of Canada's 7 Wonders. Admittedly, quite a few really great places & things received the honour: Pier 21 in Halifax, Niagara Falls, The Rockies, Old Quebec, Prairie skies, the igloo, and the canoe.

So, in celebration of this CBC contest (which really did succeed in raising awareness of so many great places in our country), I'm posting the following compromise: a historic photo of a Mik'maq canoe traversing the Bay of Fundy. So there!

I came across your blog when looking for Canada references. My husband and I are planning a trip to the maritime provinces in July and I've enjoyed reading your post. Sorry that Bay of Fundy didn't place in the top 7 wonders. I'm frankly surprised.

Ah thanks! Perhaps the many wonders of the Bay have yet to be fully championed by those of us who live and love it. Glad that you are up for the adventure this summer - enjoy!

What a snub. If this isn't a natural wonder, what is?
