Today I am doing a blog post as part of Brittany of Gallery No. 8's fabulous Summer Blog Crawl. Brittany has organized an amazing line-up of bloggers to each do a post on summer. It has been such a pleasure to follow along and experience summer through other people's eyes, with snapshots from all over the world. For my turn, I simply had to feature New River Beach, where I have spent a ton of summer time (including last weekend). It is on the Bay of Fundy, home of the highest tides in the world. Growing up here you get accustomed to watching one hundred billion tonnes of water flow in and out of the Bay every 12 hours, but every time I come back to visit I am amazed to see the entire beach appear and disappear completely!
Growing up in the Atlantic Provinces (I have lived in PEI, New Brunswick, Newfoundland, and Nova Scotia!) summers were always spent on the beach. I remember going to New River with my grandparents in their wood-paneled station wagon long before we had a cottage there.
Then you can go for long beach walks and find all kinds of treasures in the sand.
