Raft the Tidal Bore on the Shubenacadie.

I know that many people start planning their summer vacation now so today I want to tell you about a great way to go outside and play in Nova Scotia.

A tidal bore is a tidal phenomenon in which the leading edge of the incoming tide forms a wave (or waves) of water that travel up a river or narrow bay against the direction of the current. The Bay of Fundy, with the highest tides in the world, creates quite an exciting tidal bore in the Shubenacadie River in Nova Scotia. Rafting this phenomenon is a great way to go outside and play.

Looks like fun don't you think. You can learn more at Rafting Canada

Now about this weeks results for 10 Weeks to Get Healthy in 2010

I did not lose any weight this week. That is to be expected as I lost so much at the start so I am going to hang in there and see what happens next week. I find my body is changing. Clothes are looser - one pair of jeans is too big, I can run up two flights of stairs without thinking about it and I am much stronger. The walking is going well. Still walking about 20 kms per week.

Arch is doing really well. He is now walking about 35 kms per week and lost 2 lbs last week. How I envy men, they seem to lose weight so easily.

Tara, our dog, who walks with Arch is also losing weight. Not in the plan but she can afford to lose a bit.

I found a great interactive web site this week that has lots of great tools to help you in your goal to get healthy: SparkPeople


  1. I was thinking about doing this in the summer with the family.

    Hubby and I drove Maitland last summer to watch the rafters on the Shubenacadie River. Looked like they were having a blast.

  2. Anne, this is something that's high on my "to do" list for next summer.
