I am currently in my fourth year of university and have lived in the same small town throughout these years. I am one of those people who wanted to spread their wings and fly if you know what I mean. Most of the people I graduated high school with went to school in the same province or one province over….while I literally went to the other side of Canada. I get asked the question “Why did you want to go there?” so often its not even funny. My answer: I want to see the world. I know I am still in Canada, but growing up and living in the same town in Northern Alberta my whole life got a little boring. I want to explore the world and see/experience everything I can. In future posts I will be talking about places I would like to go…so leave any suggestions below!
Anyways back to the post … I have learnt a lot about the Bay of Fundy while being here and living literally right next to it. My current apartment balcony overlooks the bay and I absolutely love this! It means that I get to watch the amazing tides come in and out and also the absolutely stunning sunrises and sunsets. Not sure if you knew this, but the Bay of Fundy has the highest tides in the World. They occur twice daily and move 160 billion tonnes of seawater in and out each time!
Random place to sit along the dikes.
Sunrise in fall. This was just after 7 am and the colours were absolutely stunning. I had to run and grab my phone quick! The intense colours of the sunrises and sunsets here do not last long!
This is a sunset taken in winter. I always wondered what would happen to the tidal movements when winter came, but obviously this water moves too much to freeze!
Late night walk along the dikes. During high tide the brackish waters cover the vegetation!
Sunset walk in the fall. Love how the light literally lights up the grass.
By the way, sorry for the worse quality pictures they were all taken on my phone!
One of the down faults of living on the bay is the weather…it can get pretty yucky. Living in a costal environment means that there are periods where the sun barley shines. I absolutely hate this! Where I grew up its sunny a lot..even in the long, cold winters. So, living in a place where the sun disappears for bits of time actually effects my mood. I get sad and unmotivated during these times and I don’t enjoy feeling like that. So its safe to say I won’t be living in a coastal climate when I settle down!

Until next time, xoxo
