From the highlands of Cape Breton to the tidal flats of the Bay of Fundy, this aerial photographic exploration of Nova Scotia reveals rugged coastlines, fossil beds, and the highest tides in the world in the Bay of Fundy. The port of Halifax was one of the first stops for English explorers, and still has much marine traffic today. Iconic Peggy's Cove and the massive rock structures along the Fundy Shore draw many tourists each year. Northumberland Straight has some of the warmest ocean waters in Canada, and Canso Causeway connects Cape Breton Island to the mainland. Gaelic is still at the heart of the area's culture, and the Margaree River Valley draws salmon fishing enthusiasts. Cape Breton Highlands is accessed by the world famous Cabot Trail, clinging to the cliffs, and Point Aconi lighthouse is one of the many famous lights around the shores of this province.
