The Bay of Fundy is essentially a flooded rift valley. During the Jurassic Period, fiery lava fountains spread over the red sandstones, cooling into layer after layer of dark basaltic rock. Today, this can be seen along the southern side of the Bay of Fundy as today’s North Mountain on Digby Neck. During the late Tertiary Period, sea level rose and the previous coastline was drowned, forming distinctive coastal features such as the Bay of Fundy and St. Mary’s Bay.
It’s early spring and the fields are yet to start to turn green. But the waiting fields, the blue waters of St Mary’s Bay and Sandy Cove, off in the distance on Digby Neck combine to produce a pleasing image.
