Stairs to the Bay of Fundy at Hopewell Cape Provincial Park; Canada (New Brunswick) ( Info at Page 1)

The Hopewell Rocks Provincial Park is situated at the north side of the Bay of Fundy in New Brunswick opposite Nova Scotia. Here is the world largest tidal difference. On this day the difference between low tide and high tide was 14 meters. At low tide you can walk on the floor of the bay between the so called Flowerpot shaped rocks. At high tide these will form little islands in the bay. Nearby the water of the Petitcodiac flows into the Bay of Fundy River. This river is also called the Chocalate River, referring to the brown color which is caused by the brown soil of this area. When the tide comes in it meets the revers flow of river and causes a tidal bore. On this photo the tide is rushing in and the water can be seen rising every minute. These two rocks resemble a large ans a little bear (this last one with quite some fantasy).
