Caption

During my stay at the Bay of Fundy I reviewed 250 km of the coastline, and had walked and climbed about 50 km. Not much? Well not so easy, and that 250 km was not only once but following the tidal amplitude, and being extremely careful to not be captured by the high tide. When I was at St. Martin the group of people was rescued from the high cliffs... Why so high tidal amplitude in a Bay of Fundy? Not of the shape and the position but by the volume of the bay - by the coincidence it is such volume that the tide comes to resonance and that resonance cause so high amplitude - yes unique. Bay of Fundy was the candidate for the Seven nature wonders of the World.
