Hi crazynewfie! Welcome to the forum! Cool shot, I have never seen a house built in such a place, I think I would need to be inland just a tad bit more than this guy.

wow... talk about hard to get to! i assume that's just someone's vacation cabin... still, getting to the front door looks like a major challenge! is that a river in the foreground, or a salt waterinlet?

Yes, one wonders why someone would build a house on land on "stilts".

One obvious answer would be, of course, storms.

The less obvious answer might be the extreme tidal surges.

Google on Google images for Bay of Fundy :)

Now that's just crazy, it's actually a miracle that the place is still standing come summer! I think I'll give it a miss as a vacation hotel :-)

Thanks for sharing! John.

Thanks for welcoming me to the forum. This is a really nice place.

The photo above is of a fishing shed. It was used to store fishing gear like nets, ropes, traps or anything related to fishing. I also found out that it has been there now for over 50 years and there use to be a wharf build to it but the ocean hassweptit away about ten years ago when there was a huge storm.

Interesting pic, and interestingstory about an interesting spot!! I did wonder exactlyhow one would get there when I first looked at the pic!

You'd have to wait for a low tide to get to it!!! Must have quite a view from the backyard. Interesting shot indeed!
