In the Rio Fundo

The Portuguese who first fished its waters in the 16th century called it the "Rio Fundo", or deep estuary.  Eventually it became anglicised to "Bay of Fundy," home to the highest tides in the world, and the bay that separates New Brunswick and Maine from Nova Scotia.

Yesterday Bennet and Hank from Pratique, a beautiful Outbound '46, kindly invited us for an afternoon sail.  We came across a couple of basking sharks, ocean sunfish, rainbows, and other animals.  Ocean sunfish grow to exceed one ton.  The basking sharks were about half as long as the boat.
