Cruise: Day Four, St. John’s

Since our amazing kayaking excursion was cancelled due to old people, we had to settle for a bus trip out to the Bay of Fundy in St. John’s, New Brunswick, our first Canadian port.  The Bay of Fundy has the most dramatic tide change in the world.  The tide shifts 50 feet over the course of 12 hours.  We got to see the bay at high tide, visit a fishing village, and become honorary New Brunswickians by eating seaweed (called dulce).  We also got to experience the changing tides on our cruise ship.  When we got off the ship at high tide, we exited from deck 0.  When people got back on the ship at low tide, they had to use deck 5.  The view from our cabin window (on deck 1) changed from a view of the docks to a view of the concrete wall of the dock.  Pretty incredible!

Here’s the day in photos:
