the New 7Wonders of Nature: vote for Nova Scotia’s Bay of Fundy

Have you heard of the ‘new 7 Wonders of Nature‘ campaign?

 

The Bay of Fundy (Nova Scotia) is Canada’s only finalist among the twenty-eight vying for recognition as one of the new 7 Wonders of Nature.  If you have never seen the Bay of Fundy – I have to tell you that you are missing something unique and incredible – and you really must include it in your vacation plans.

We have the highest tides in the world here, five to ten times higher than anywhere else in the world! Did you know that the amount of water in one tide cycle that comes in and out of the Bay of Fundy is enough to fill and empty the Grand Canyon? Imagine it! The tide can go from high to low in only six hours and thirteen minutes! And it cycles twice a day.

Twelve different species of whales live in the Bay of Fundy. Ever go whale watching? If you come to Nova Scotia to see the Bay of Fundy you shouldn’t leave out a good whale watching expedition.

Fossil discoveries made here have surpassed those in other areas of the world. This and other amazing facts which you really must read, can be found here:  http://www.votemyfundy.com/about-bay-of-fundy/

I am always in awe over the Bay since I love everything about the ocean — the tides, the salty and seaweed smell, the power, its aquatic life.  The ocean is my healing place. It is restorative, terrifyingly wondrous, my place to sense the power of God like in no other way.

Please, I would appreciate it if you would go to http://www.votemyfundy.com and place your vote for the Bay of Fundy to become one of the New 7 Wonders of Nature. Voting time ends November 11.  Once you’ve done that, make plans to come to Nova Scotia to experience the wonder and beauty and awe of an amazing wonder of nature. Then you’ll see why I love it here. 🙂

What wonderful stories do you have to tell about this amazing wonder of Nature, or perhaps any others of the 28 finalists?

Thanks for reading, and … Creative Musings!  🙂
