X-Country Skiing on the low-tide beach

No doubt about it: our Bay of Fundy beaches are well-loved and oft-visited by locals year round. Lovely in the 'fair weather' months, that's for sure, but in winter the snow and tides make for some curious experiences...

Here's a one that I thought would amuse you: a low-tide Bay of Fundy beach in Parrsboro, Nova Scotia, being used as a nice, flat cross-country ski trail. Only for a few hours though - the incoming tide will swallow all this snow when it flows from right to left across the frame,

Thanks to photographer, Len Wagg, for lending this picture. See more of his upper Fundy shore photo shoot from this weekend on Nova Scotia Tourism's facebook album.

Are the little cabins still there on the edge of town? My husband and I stayed there for 2 days around 10 years ago. We loved it!!!

who broke the trail? my bro Randy as u know has made trails 4 yrs and it has never been published. have u done his trails?

hmmm don't know who started this trail down the beach...would have been a one-tide wonder haha because it's just tracks on snow. Yes Randy did a fabulous job with the Partridge Island trail - I hike it regularly but hey,come to think of it, I don't think I've done a blog post about it so will put it on my 'to do' list to take some pics and do a post this summer! thx for the reminder :)
