This is a fun train caboose that is now a take out diner at the waterfront in Yarmouth, Nova Scotia. We spent the day in Yarmouth in the thick fog with rain on and off all day too. The plan is to head for Bar Harbor, Maine across the Bay of Fundy tomorrow.
Waterfront Diner in Yarmouth, NS.
Here is a series of 6 pictures over the course of today showing what a 14-16 foot tide looks like at a marina. This is low tide.
And here is the same location and shot at high tide!
This is at low tide for the iboats.com boat.
And here is the same shot of the iboats.com boat at high tide.
And here is the dock with ramp/stairs going up and down from ground level to the dock at low tide.
And here is the same spot at high tide with a picture showing the flat ramp at ground level with no need for the stairs.
The commercial fishing boats dock almost right next to the Killam Brothers Marina where we are staying in Yarmouth. When then they remove the tons and tons of herring from the boats they then wash and flush out the ship’s hold and what is washed into the harbor is a large amount of herring scales, seen here on the surface.
As the commercial herring boats clean out their holds, unusable dead herring also go overboard and that attracts hundreds of seagulls looking for a meal.
The rain came in waves all day. Here was a heavy downpour followed by 3 nice hours for walking…in the fog, mostly.
The Killam Bros. Marina is managed by a great guy Paul Pothier, shown here in a red shirt. Paul’s Assistant is Max Poole, shown here also with me. Max got excited when he saw our boat’s name of iboats.com and he told me he is a regular reader and contributor in the iboats boating Forums…and that the Forums have really helped him with some boat engine issues. Way to go Max and iboats!
Cari and I took a walk through town and out along the coast road a ways, carrying an umbrella . This is a building in Yarmouth built by using river rocks, or field stones.
One of the main streets in Yarmouth, NS.
Looking the other direction down a busy street in Yarmouth, NS.
As we neared the edge of town overlooking the Yarmouth harbor entrance we saw this fascinating home with a widow’s walk on top…most definitely a former sea captain’s home.
Looking out over the fields and trees on the edge of town outside Yarmouth.
Walking back toward town.
Looking through the fog from the road that runs along the harbor near the edge of town. The tide was low and so all you see going out into the bay and fog is the mud and rock bottom of the bay…minus it’s 14-16 feet of water!
Here is a tight fitting harbor for commercial fishing boats in Yarmouth, most tied together 2-3 deep…at low tide.
The iboats.com quietly at dock at low tide again, waiting for tomorrow’s next adventure. Come join us.
