Fox Point

Not unlike city subdivisions various geographic outcroppings of the Bay of Fundy often end up with evocative nature-names. I recently took this photo of Fox Point in Nova Scotia. The top side of the fox tail-shaped beach edges the bay; the inner side actually shelters a tidal river that fully empties at low tide.

The tide turned about an hour before I took this photo (you can tell by the band of bare beach around the end of the 'tail" below the snow line). This particular beach is connected to the mainland at the far right and never gets fully covered by the tide.

aw that's nice, Nancy. Yes, i'll certainly be back to visit you. I may ask to 'borrow' a few of your photos would be good to get the view from the other side of the bay!

Hey Terri, I never knew that!
That's one of our favorite spots along our drive "downshore".
