Day 10: We left camp at about 9 AM headed for Truro, NS to see the tidal bore. We got there about 10:45 anticipating the bore at 11:05. Well, the tidal bore appeared just before 11 AM. While it was really small, about 4-6 inches high, it was very interesting to watch the fiver flowing out and all of a sudden it had changed directions and was flowing in, BIG TIME !! We watched from an old bridge abutment. There was an iron tank in the river where we were watching which stuck out of the water at least 2 ft and it only took about 10 minutes for the tide to come up enough to completely cover that tank.

Just after 6 PM we sat down to crock pot lasagna that Charlie had put together and let cook all day. It was excellent !
