    I asked about "year to year" changes. Geological changes are clearly visible there.

    Why startling? Wouldn't you expect at least *some* erosion? The tides of the Bay of Fundy are enormously powerful and extremely erosive. Tourists even visit partly to see the erosional features. And after all, this resonant tide system is not that old. It's been around in roughly its present state for less than 10,000 years. If there's no active erosion, when would you expect it to have stopped?
