Re: High and low tide England

Being from Florida, and not having had the pleasure of traveling to such exotic places as Maine, Canada, or England, I'm having a hard time wrapping my brain around the scale of these tidal variations. I've heard about the great range of tides in the Bay of Fundy but never really spent much time thinking about the timing of such a drastic change in water level. Do the tides change like this twice a day in those places, like we see here in Florida, or does this range happen over a matter of days or weeks?
