Day two in Yarmouth, just taking it easy. Although Yarmouth is a bit bigger than many other Nova Scotia ports, it’s still a working harbor. There are lots of large fishing boats coming and going, and a huge ice plant a couple of blocks down from our dock.
We’re starting to see the famous Bay of Fundy tides, which can range up to 15 feet here. We’re on a floating dock, which makes tying up easier, but the fishing wharves don’t usually have floats. This photo was taken a couple of hours before low tide:
This is also where “The Cat” ferry from Portland, Maine stops overnight. She leaves Portland at around 2:30 PM and arrives here around 8 PM.
The Cat got underway around 8 AM. If we could sneak a tow line onto her, we could be back in Portland by 1:30 PM!
We hope to leave before The Cat tomorrow, on our way to Tiverton.
Until then, you can see Cygnus live on the Killam’s Wharf Web Cam.
