Have You Ever Wondered about the Bay of Fundy?

If you haven’t heard by now, Nova Scotia’s and New Brunswick’s Bay is entered into a worldwide competition... And no, this one is not done by the CBC... It’s done by a website called It’s a website that was first dedicated to naming the “new” 7 Wonders of the World back in 2007 and now looking to name the 7 Wonders of the Natural World. 

It’s nice to see that the Bay of Fundy is getting some overdue attention. It is a magnificent place. If you can brave the hour and a half hike out to Cape Split, near Wolfville, you just might get a glimpse of how amazing it is to watch 100 BILLION tonnes of seawater flow in and out of the bay, not once but twice daily. That amount of water would fill up the Grand Canyon (who by the way is our competition). Not to mention that the high tides are ten times higher than anywhere else in the world. You take some of the most amazing picturesque landscape photos in Nova Scotia but then you can wait about six and a half hours and take an entirely different landscape photo at the exact same place.

It must have been a blow below the belt to Nova Scotia’s overachiever pageant child, The Cabot Trail. As much money that tourism has sinks into publicity for the Highland Park,  a part of me is kind of glad it wasn’t recognized because well...I’m kinda over it. Nothing against the Trail but it annoys me that all the promotional pictures Nova Scotia Tourism uses are from the Cabot Trail.. as if that’s all we’ve got..

Nova Scotia and New Brunswick Tourism has been working hard to promote The Bay of Fundy in this contest. They’ve gone all out and even set up a website called It list all the reasons why The Bay of Fundy is one of the 7 Wonders of the Natural World.  

If you want to vote for the Bay of Fundy to vote you can do so on your phone by texting Fundy to 77077. It also cost $0.25 to vote my text so if you’re not down with that then you can just go to the website and register to log in your vote.

Vote NOW because voting ends Nov 11/11 and we need something else to brag about other than the “World Famous” Cabot Trail.
