I'm an outdoor adventure guide who specializes in sharing my explorations of the shores of the highest tides on earth, on the Bay of Fundy in Nova Scotia. I try to search out the unique destinations away from the more well known tourist highlights in my travels. After 53 interesting and constantly evolving years of life my focus has changed a bit due to the inevitable aging, but I still love to challenge myself to discover those special places. My wife, our cat Willy and I have the luck to live in one of those special places, Advocate Harbour, experiencing daily one of the most dynamic marine environments on earth.
