A few days ago, Wolfville experienced exceptionally high tides, an event which will only happen again in 2014. The water was lapping up against the dykes, somewhat menacingly if you consider that without these barriers of rock and soil, the town would be very much underwater.
The tides swallowed the expanse of marshy grasses that usually characterize the landscape as you look out into the Minas Basin. What was left was a vast body of water, uninterrupted all the way from Waterfront Park to the Blomidon cliffs.
The high tides also seemed to bring in many ducks and shorebirds.
