Out for morning walk during low tide, @hammerhead 'nestled' into Old Wive.
An evening walk with Stosh to check out the mud-flats left at low tide. "On a flood tide, 160 billion tonnes of seawater flows into the Bay of Fundy — more than four times the estimated combined flow of all the world's freshwater rivers during the same 6-hour interval. The vertical tidal range can be over 16 metres — giving the Bay of Fundy the highest tides in the world." A routine that does repeat itself 'like clockwork."
@hammerhead initiating a brand new camp-stove. One of two tents - Stosh's 'hangout'. Such a novelty to camp 'out of the trunk'!!
Hiking Economy Trail, one of two of the Thomas Cove's Coastal Reserve Trails. @hammerhead checking out 'how's the fishing?" Pulling in striped bass -- 20-pounders-plus -- is pretty common. But apparently not that day :-)
Close to our 'finish line' (the parking lot and our vehicles), paddling through 'The Sluice', we passed these two hard-working men, harvesting rockweed seaweed. (Commercial uses: packed with live organisms during shipping, i.e. lobsters or marine bait worms; added to gardens as fertilizer and mulch. After processing used for nutritional additives - and contains a compound used as a thickening agent in food, cosmetics, and some paints.)
The timing was perfect for: appreciation for all that these waters offer and supply to people; a strong nudge of gratitude for the privilege I'd had to be here for adventure and exercise and fun; gratitude to be with friends, for our safety and lessons learned.
