Sea Kayaking in the Bay of Fundy
It is one thing to view the famous Bay of Fundy from the shore and watch as the tide slowly comes ashore and then retreats. It is another thing to literally sit ‘on’ the water as the tide comes and goes. This is exactly what we did with NovaShores Adventures out of Advocate Harbour in Nova Scotia, Canada.
We recently passed the two-month mark since we planted our feet back on home soil here in St. John’s, Newfoundland. Leading up to our flight back home, we had so many mixed feelings on how things would be once we got back from an incredible nine month adventure around the world.
