So Alice and I enjoyed a small hike along the Bay of Fundy today, near Cape Split. The trail we took was pretty overgrown which made hiking a bit of a beach. We tide to hike to the end, but we could sea that it would take to long, so we turned around. At some points, I thought Alice was going to krill me. She had haddock. Shell get over it eventunally.
Afterwards, I showered in a waterfall and it was fintastic.
Anywave, the bay of fundy has the highest tidal difference in the world and we were just over the moon to be hiking there. Turns out, the large tidal change is caused by wave resonance. In other words, a wave will travel from the mouth of the bay, to its end and back in 1 tidal cycle, kind of like a person being pushed on a swing. The approximate length of the bay allows for this phenomenon (cool!). Here are some photos I took of a boat at high/low tide.
Also, got to hike around on Basalt formations. They looked to me like pillow basalts (lava bubbling out of the ocean floor) but the wiki article said they were flood basalts. Don’t know, here is a photo, maybe some geo folk could chime in?
