To collect on the Bay of Fundy is to synchronize your life to tides. Most of us are not used to doing that, these days! Every day, high tides and low tides occur at different times. For some reason whenever I am collecting there, we have to rise before sunrise at 4am or 4:30am to drive to the correct cove and be ready to hit the beach JUST after the high tide starts receding. This way we will always maximize the time that we have to collect before the next high tide starts approaching, 11 or so hours later. Here is the sunrise that occurred as we were driving out of Dartmouth, heading for the Bay of Fundy.
