Tide watching from stilts

One of my favourite little corners of the Bay of Fundy universe is the village of Bear River, near Digby, Nova Scotia. Bear River is located about 6 km from the Bay of Fundy on an extreme tidal river.

Bear River is well-known throughout the region as a mecca for resident artisans and as Bay of Fundy's 'village on stilts'. I was recently in the area for several days and enjoyed both the view and the food at the Bear River Cafe, pictured here.

To learn more about Bear River, check out another local blog: Flora & Larry's chronicling their adventure moving from Toronto (pop'n 2 million) to Bear River (pop'n 800)

thanks so much for the blog mention. I know that you helped to direct more readers this way. Yaaaaay!!

Thanks for your reporting of all things Bay of Fundy. I learned a lot about tides when I found your blog shortly after we moved here. I previously had no idea that they followed the moon's cycles, not the sun's even though I knew the moon affected the water height. I owe you a lot!

When I'm in Parrsboro, I'm so lazy that I don't want to drive anywhere except down shore or to Five Islands, but when I see your pictures I think I should 'get out' more ;)
