Saint John and the Bay of Fundy

Almighty God began the day with a beautiful painting of the sunrise!
5 minutes later, notice how the light has changed!  When you see color, take the shot.
Good morning to you all!!   We're in Saint John, New Brunswick, Canada which sits on the Bay of Fundy.  The Bay of Fundy's tides are the largest and most powerful in the world.  At high tide it actually forces the St. John River to flow backward.  This port city is famous for seafood, specifically lobster but also oysters, scallops, clams, crabs and mussels.
The tide is rushing in and pushing the river backward. Note the fishermen....
Mary Alice and I were on the Bay of Fundy Coastal Photography Tour led by a professional photographer.  It's a smaller group on a smaller bus.  There were about 23 of us from the ship.  After a confusing and crowded beginning before we even left the ship we met up with our guide outside the port gate and began the tour.
Lepreau Falls
We were treated to a scenic drive around Saint John and on to Fallsview Park. This is where we witnessed the rushing incoming tide which pushed the river backward.  We were then on to Lepreau Falls where the Lepreau River spills over a rocky ledge.  From there we were on to Dipper Harbour, a working wharf and fishing village on the Bay of Fundy coast.
