New England (13)
I always had it in my head that the fog horn on lighthouses would be somewhere in the building itself. Why should it be?
This is the fog horn for West Quoddy Light
Abandoned wharf, Lubec
The opposite shore is Canada
After lunch in Lubec it was time to head off again. This time we were heading to St. John in Canada. We planned for this so bought our passports but what we did forget to do was change our money into Canadian dollars. It turned out OK though because Canadians will accept US dollars everywhere. They usually just do a straight one for one swap. It doesn't mater though because the current exchange rate is 1 USD to 0.98CaD
St. John is the location of Reversing Falls
This a strange place. What happens is that a river flowing into the bay goes over a series of ledges. The Bay of Fundy has the highest tides in the world and comes in so fast the water piles up at the mouth of the river and the falls flow backward. We got there at slack tide which meant with little tidal movement the water was being churned in all directions when the river water emptied into the bay.
