While low tides revealed mud flats beside our campground, in other coastal areas low tide revealed some exciting rock features, as shown below. Most of the coast we saw was sandstone and is actively eroding. Will Nova Scotia disappear eventually?
Here we are on the beach at Five Islands when the tide is out. The sloping beach above the mud flats is made of gravel, with so many interesting colours and shapes. Of course I had to collect some for future painting ideas.
