If you find yourself in Truro make sure you check out when the tidal bore times are ! A tidal bore, is a tidal phenomenon in which the leading edge of the incoming tide forms a wave (or waves) of water that travels up a river or narrow bay against the direction of the river or bay's current.Tidal bore-affected estuaries are rich feeding zones and breeding grounds of several forms of wildlife. The estuarine zones are the spawning and breeding grounds of several native fish species, while the aeration induced by the tidal bore contributes to the abundant growth of many species of fish.
P.S Don't be alarmed if you are taking pictures here in the dark and you hear a splash sound from across the river that sounds like a bear jumping in the water to eat you, or someone ditching a body . . . It's actually just mud falling into the water from the eroding riverbank. ( it was late and I needed sleep) 😂😨😲 WARNING - DO NOT WALK ON RIVERBED WHEN THE TIDE IS OUT. It takes 2 seconds for the riverbed to look like it does in this image at low tide , to being full of water at high tide when the bore comes in.
