My parents are visiting the Bay of Fundy, between Nova Scotia and New Brunswick.  They're checking out the tides (highest in the world) and the puffins.  I'm educating vicariously through their travels.  We looked it up on the map, so geography is done.  Then we did some science experiments with tides.  We learned what makes tides and why they're so high in the Bay of Fundy.

even bigger ocean.  Sarah is timing the rate of oscillation.

Shiloh was curious about the tides too.

If you click on the picture to make it bigger, you'll see that she has an embarrassed look on her face.  :)

They couldn't resist getting in the biggest ocean and making huge tides and making Lego people surf.  They're still in there.
