I was driving in Nova Scotia last year. While driving from Halifax, I wanted to go the Bay of Fundy where it is reported that they have the largest tides in the world and are reported up to 50 feet. I made Digby NS my destination because I was told that they are the scallop capital. I got there about 2:00PM and went straight to the docks. I was told there that they did not sell them directly off the dock but to go to Sams which was just a couple of blocks up the street. I went to Sams and since it was in the middle of the afternoon, nobody was there. I told him I wanted some fried scallops. He said that would be $5.00 Canadian which was about $4.00 US. I gave it to him and he returned about ten minutes later with what I guessed with about two pounds of wonderful steaming hot spiced fried golden brown scallops. They were in a huge box. I enjoyed the next half hour on the Bay of Fundy watching the tide come in with a bottle of the Canadian best.
