Bay of Fundy 05

Piece description from the artist

The Bay of Fundy is located between the provinces of New Brunswick and Nova Scotia, and is known for having the highest tidal range in the world. Folklore in the Mi'kmaq First Nation claims that the tides are caused by a giant whale splashing in the water. The Princess of Acadia ferry crosses the Bay of Fundy twice daily between Digby, Nova Scotia and Saint John, New Brunswick. Constructed in 1971, the 87 ft long ship carries a crew of 28 and has a capacity of 650 passengers.
