Wade, swim, walk, explore,….
The Cottages are located on the Baie Verte shores. Some of Baie Vert’s unique attributes offer some unique opportunities to experience the sea. The tides have a more modest range than the neighbouring Bay of Fundy. The tides on the Northumberland Strait fall in the 8 to 15 foot range compared to 40-50 foot tides of Fundy.
The sea floor falls off very gently on this region of the Strait. Thus, though the tides are not as high, they can go out very far.
This allows the sun several hours every day to warm the resulting “sand flats” which in turn, warms the water, as the high tide returns. Thus, practically every day there are several hours to “explore the bottom of the sea” and several hours to play or swim in in this “solar heated” Bay.
