Bay of Fundy

Next stop on our trek through the Maritimes was New Brunswick. We stayed very near the Hopewell Rocks in the Bay of Fundy. Here are some of the "Flowerpots" with water at almost high tide. The tides in the Bay of Fundy around Hopewell are over 10 meters (35 feet).

At low tide, you can actually walk on the ocean floor around these flowerpots. I find this pretty mind boggling, not to mention a bit muddy. There's still some Fundy on my shoes.

Another person on the beach pointed out that there were hermit crabs around the rocks. Of course, the sock had to say hello. The hermits were, well, hermits and didn't want to come out of their shells.


Our motel was kind of interesting. For some reason, there was a giant stork-like bird in the sitting area between the restaurant and the gift shop. The sock decided that, since he has a "lifeline", he would risk posing with the bird.

Thanks for blogging your vacation! I've really enjoyed the photos and your updates--makes me feel like I've taken a vacation...if only vicariously...

The scenery continues to be magnificent!
