Moncton is a very walkable city with an interesting little downtown, but this phenomenon of the tidal bore is so understated. While visiting, my husband and I accidentally noticed the bore clock in front of the Tidal Bore park and walked along the shore around the time of an expected bore. It was incredible to see a surfer riding a wave that rounded the river bend, and to see the volume of water pour through! How had we lived in Nova Scotia and not been aware of the majesty of this experience? You need to see this. The next morning, we drove to Riverview to see the vista from the other side and saw a sunrise beyond belief. I don't think we could ever tire of the constantly changing vistas of the Petticodiac in Moncton, and we will definitely go back. In the meantime, we are reading about the Saxby Gale, another underestimated Moncton phenom (look for the blue lines on the waterfront buildings that mark the flooding height).
