Blomidon Beach

Tues., June 19th – We took off early for our drive up the northern coast of the Annapolis Valley. By noon we were in Hall’s Harbour at Hall’s Lobster Pound where your lobster is hand dipped from a tank and given to you in a bucket to carry to the cookhouse. You then walk across the breezeway to the restaurant and wait for your lobster dinner to be served. The neat thing about this place is that it’s right on the water with a dock that experiences the highest tides in the world. There is enough water flowing into the Bay of Fundy every 24 hrs. to fill the Grand Canyon 6 ½ times! Seriously! Our arrival was exactly at low tide, and the fishing boats were sitting at the wharf high and dry. When we returned 6 hours later, the boats were floating in waters that had risen almost 40’. Truly a phenomenon to observe! While waiting for the tide change, we went to Blomidon Provincial Park to walk the beach known for attracting the rockhounds. We didn’t find any treasures, but the scenic red cliffs were well worth the visit. We’ve had a great time in the Annapolis Valley. Tomorrow we move on to Peggy’s Cove.
