Since July was such a hot month and I have been hearing locals and visitors alike Wishing for Fog, I thought a few pictures from the St. Martins Harbour and the shore along the Bay of Fundy on one Foggy day back in June would cool things off a bit for everybody..
It is low tide and the fishing boats are sitting in the mud.. One of the covered bridges is in the background... there are two at the harbour... also it has a covered walkway for pedestrians with cut-out window holes.
I love when everything disappears into the fog.. now you see it... now you don't... it's Magic.
Views like this are an Artist's Dream.... anyone living here or visiting must feel they are walking inside a Painting.
There is a wharf on either side of the harbour.
Most of these boats are scallop draggers and I can't wait to have some fresh scallops.
Like the Boat's name, "Last Chance"... perhaps they mean it's our last chance to cool off.
As can be seen by the water marks on the wharf supports the tide has to rise more before they can go out.
6 hours in, 6 hours out.
This is The Caves, one of St. Martins landmarks, carved by the Bay of Fundy waves from the sandstone cliffs.
I was quite a distance away when I took this shot so the size of them does not appear as large as they really are. I'll have to check for sure but I think the bluffs are 60'-75 'high plus the tall Spruce trees.
See my side bar for The Caves on a sunny day.
The incoming tide has riled up the sand and made the water look dark.
The waves are beginning to hit on the red bluffs in the background.. They aren't very high today.. last year when a big storm went through.. the waves were crashing so hard that they were splashing well over the tops of the trees on the tops of the bluffs. Everybody always heads to the shore to take pictures when that happens.. On one occasion the waves grabbed a car and started to pull it into the surf... but luckily with some help from some bystanders and ropes they were able to rescue it.
Heading out to a day of fishing on the Bay of Fundy
... starting to clear a bit.
I see blue skies, so another beautiful day will soon be upon us.
