Today we are going to visit the little town of Alma, New Brunswick right on the coast of the Bay of Fundy. It's about an hour's drive from where I live, down river as the locals say. The Bay of Fundy receives and loses twice daily some of the highest tides in the world, rising to 30+ feet (10+ metres), especially at full moon times and in the autumn. I think most of what I say here is true, having worked a couple of seasons at a tourist site in the area and having had to spout off a bunch of facts in both official languages.
