Escape the HEAT!

30 degrees + Celsius is just too HOT for me and my guys. So, we jumped into the car and sped off to Hall's Harbour on the Bay of Funday. The highest tides in the world are said to exist here.  As we arrived, the tide was coming in and ...yep...the tides were coming in quickly and with that speed you have to be careful with how far you walk or you could be swimming back to the parking lot.

Coming down the hill into the small village this is what you see....

It's always refreshing to get to this point in the sojourn because the temperature drops almost 10 degrees C. The relief is immediate!

The small fishing harbour has many boats and a few small quaint restaurants. Lobster is a specialty of course, mmm.

From this view you can see the far cliffs stretching along the coastline. This is where true relief exists. The walk can be long or short depending on Mother Nature. She, at a whim can decide the length of your stay. Today we knew the walk would be short. No matter, the cool fresh air was all we wanted.

Sophie and Jim are eyeing  the water. This place has to be christened and once my ball is thrown I will happy.

So we walked and I swam.

I can honestly say that this place is a 'COOL' place...literally!

As I predicted Mother Nature crept in quickly with the waters sneaking up along the shore. So peaceful and calm today. I just wonder what the place in going to look like on the weekend with Hurricane Earl supposedly venturing into our waters? Time will tell!
