Berth Buddies

By IamDora
It does not get more Nova Scotia than this.

Yesterday afternoon I took the camera for its first outing since we got home, and we headed straight for the Bay of Fundy. The Fundy was having a good day which wasn't what I wanted. No seals at Port George. But I arrived at Port Lorne just as the Allyssa C was returning with its catch. The Scotia Mist was tied up at the wharf but it backed out and let the loaded fishing boat get in for unloading. Then the Scotia Mist snugged in and shared the berth.

Nova Scotians (Bluenosers, Herring-choker, Coasties) have a strong emotional connection with the sea and with our fishermen fishing considered the most dangerous of occupations, especially on The Fundy which is a very unforgiving body of water. It hovers just above freezing, has the highest and most forceful tides in the world, loaded with rips and soughs and unpredictable weather systems. Yesterday was very much the exception.
