Travel News: On our way home to Toronto

From Halifax, we drive to Digby. It takes us a while to drive out of the city of Halifax as we drive over bridges and a complicated road system to put us on the highway. The terrain is simple and flat with no particular sites to see until we get to Digby. This town is known for its scallops, those Digby scallops. Here we take the ferry to Saint John, New Brunswick.

At the Ferry Terminal in Digby, Nova Scotia 
The ferry crosses the Bay of Fundy which is known for its highest tidal ranges in the world. Apparently, one has to witness the landscape at its best when the tide is out. Unfortunately for us the tide was out in the early hours of the morning. 

While on the Ferry, we listened to the brief announcements coming from the loudspeaker; then the lady on the loudspeaker claimed that the Bay of Fundy is the 8th wonder of the world?? Imagine that!

We pass a fish hatchery as we move out of Digby

After almost four hours of basking in the sun and being wind swept on the deck of the Ferry, we arrive in Saint John, New Brunswick to rest for the night. The next couple of days we drive home via Portmouth, New Hampshire and Albany, New York.
