The next stop on our cruise after Bar Harbor was St. John, Canada. They welcomed us with bagpipes, a rose for each woman and a pin for each man entering their city. It was in St. John that we would embark on our water/wildlife excursion on the Bay of Fundy, known worldwide for its 50' tides and as the cause of the Reversing Falls.
I should probably mention that I took this photo hanging over our balcony railing!

We saw three fin whales -- the second largest species of whales. Each citing began with the gulls in a feeding frenzy (much like our first lunch buffet on board (had these people never seen food before???)) and pilot dolphins 'herding' huge schools of herring.
