Day 353 – 10/24/11 – Slack Tide

Our next stop was in New Brunswick, more specifically in the Bay of Fundy.  There is an interesting phenomenon in the bay wherein at high tide the waters actually reverse the course of the St. John river and make the river flow backwards.  The effect happens twice a day, and the site where the waters actually turn are known as the Reversing Rapids.

Here the Rapids are seen shortly after “slack tide”, which is the point between high and low tides where the waters are in equilibrium.
