    I love this pattern

    Posted by Avia S. on 2019 Mar 12th

    I love this pattern so much. I have never made a robe, but the instructions made it so easy for me. Once the robe was finished it was so cute and little. I’m glad I have something my son can wear during the cold Northern winters.

The Bay of Fundy in Canada’s maritime is home to the highest tide fluctuations in the world.  Over the course of a day, the tides rise and fall about the height of a four or five story building in just over 6 hours.  In a 12 hour tide cycle, around 100 billion tons of water flow into and out of the Bay of Fundy.  Walk on the floor of the ocean at low tide and look up at the towering pillars of rock that the tides erode into these unique “flowerpot” shapes, then return by boat at high tide when these same rocks become islands.  

 

The Mi’kmaq people fished the Bay of Fundy for centuries before the Europeans arrived.  The powerful tides churn up nutrients along the coastline, making the Bay is a rich feeding ground for marine creatures, from tiny krill to at least eight whale species, including the endangered Northern Right Whale.
