Pic of the Week: June 19th Ride on the River

Posted: June 30th, 2010 in Our Favourite Pics

Welcome to the Pic of the Week. This is the latest tidal bore rafting video from Nova Scotian, Daniel Marshall, a hardcore Shubenacadie River rafter. Remember Daniel? Last year two of his videos were chosen among the Top Five Tidal Bore Rafting Videos in Nova Scotia. This one is bound to make the shortlist for 2010. The new video (of his June 19th, 2010 ride on the river) contains some great landscape and mud sliding shots; and like all of his productions it is entertaining and well edited. Thank you once again Daniel for a job well done.

Our Pic of Week: Blue Skies on the Shubenacadie

Posted: June 3rd, 2010 in Our Favourite Pics

Welcome to our new photo feature. Every week during the summer and fall periods we’re selecting one of our favourite photos at the park. We hope you enjoy the images and encourage our many blog readers and social media fans to contribute their own favourite photo. Just add your image to our Facebook wall with a brief description. You never know, your photo could be featured in next week’s ‘Pic of the Week’.

2006 was a great year at Tidal Bore Rafting Park. In August of that year the weather was nearly perfect (if I recall). There were a lot of group tours (more than the year before) and the river was a popular travel destination that summer. This shot was a good one. The puffy white clouds and bright blue sky, the dramatic shoreline of the Shubenacadie River, the churning water from the bore, the look of excitement and skepticism on the faces of the rafters, all contributed to this great photo, of a great ride on the river.
