This morning we stopped by Maccan Wetlands Park to check the time posting for the tidal bore today. A tidal bore is when the river is running its normal way and the tide is coming in and creates a wave of rushing water into the river from the bay. The time said 4:40 give or take 20 minutes. We arrived at 4:10 and walked a short trail and then say at the picnic tables going over some of our treasures. EÂ has been collecting pieces of pottery heÂ finds on beaches.
I am collecting beach glass. I have quite a collection of larger pieces now. I even have one piece of blue!
We were looking at the tide chart and saw it was put together by a man named Gordon Boss.
As we sat waiting for the bore a gentleman walked up and starting talking to us about the bore. It was Gordon Boss! He is 88 years young, still drives, and loves to share information about the bores. He comes almost every day to see the bore. I guess I would too if I lived at a hill over looking the area it can be seen.
We saw the water slowly enter around a curve and then push into the river.
This was a really neat experience that I am really grad we got to have today. We came back to the motorhome and cleaned up, cooled off and rehydrated. We opted no swimming tonight. We got journals caught up, laundry finished and the motorhome tidied for tomorrows departure towards Baddeck, NS.
