One of the highlights of my job-hunting journey in Nova Scotia so far has been tidal bore rafting at the Tidal Bore Rafting Park and Cottages in Shubenacadie.
The river is one of only eight rivers in the world where you can do this, and three of those rivers are in the Bay of Fundy where the highest tides in the world exist.
The whole day was ridiculously fun. One of my favourite memories is jumping out of the raft and sinking into warm mud, then tearing off my shoes and flinging myself down the mud slides. I’ve never been so dirty in my life.
Then we stood on a sandbar and waited for the tide to come in. I must admit, I expected to see a massive wall of water coming towards us, but watching the bore creep in was kinda spooky just the same. The sandbar disappeared in minutes. Then all the converging currents started causing mayhem and huge waves.
We had purposely avoided the raft with kids in it so we could curse and scream as much as we wanted. It’s a good thing too, because the expletives coming out of our mouths would have made a pornstar blush.
But I don’t need to tell you anything else, just watch Cailin’s video! I love how I’m making a “dirt angel” and Joanne is in the background sarcastically saying, “You are a dirt angel.” I love my friends.
