Baia Fonda

Ever wonder where ‘Fundy’ came from?  As in, the Bay of Fundy?  Well, it may come from the Portuguese baia fonda or ‘deep bay.’  I just started reading A Great and Noble Scheme by John Mack Faragher, and this nugget was in the opening pages.  The Bay is 700 feet deep, in points, and has the highest recorded tide change in the world – up to 56 feet! For more information on the Bay, check out Natural Resources Canada.
