Here is "the bore of the bay of Fundy", section 51.
and last but not least, thanks April, now this section was really interesting because I had never heard of the bore before. I had to check this out and found a great video on youtube. Wow this is an experience. Apparently it's high tide coming in as one single wave. Never knew that existed. Here you can see it quite well: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LuxTviktIN8

Super section, and PL ok.

The video did make the audio make more sense. Thank you for sharing it and for the pl okay Sonia. The wave does look quite powerful as water is and I would not care to be in its path.

thank you, Sandra. A wonderfully narrated PL ok section once again :9: I was surprised that the Spaniards never found Macchu Picchu.

:mrgreen: though South Africa is quite on the opposite side of Newfoundland. But you managed extremely well, I was able to follow the story ;) Great job and thanks for tackling this difficult section (someone's got to do it, right ?) It's PL ok. :)

Are you from South Africa by any chance ? Sorry I'm bad at placing accents and dialects.
