REFLECTIONS ON MY NOVA SCOTIA & NEW BRUNSWICK TRIP

Jeannie (me) and the Hunky Dorey

Back home and once more reviewing my  Nova Scotia and New Brunswick photos,  I think  back and remember  strikingly beautiful  and clean  Provinces . I recall  friendly  Maritime Canadians and wonderful  Seafood Crowder.   The vast acreage of  untouched land has  more trees than I have ever seen  and a great many of them pine. It’s what you imagine an overgrown and out of control  Christmas tree farm would  look like.   While taking a walk  one day, it even smelled like  Christmas trees.

I loved all the water,  the colorful boats, the stacks of lobster cages,  the  fishing villages that look like  something in a movie set  and the Bay of Fundy’s extreme tides.  I could be content taking photos of the high and low tides and the boats that are victims to them  everyday, given the chance. The Canadian Maritimes  are a  super place to have an adventure and explore and ten days doesn’t begin to even scratch the surface.

Hope you enjoy these last photos of my Canadian trip and  let me introduce you to a few  boats I met along the way….

This  last photo doesn’t really fit in but it was too funny to

HOPEWELL ROCKS, HOPEWELL CAPE, NEW BRUNSWICK

Warnings in two languages!

Last sightseeing day of the trip and we went to see the Hopewell Rocks in the town of Hopewell Cape, New Brunswick.  These sandstone rocks, that stand by themselves, are also affectionately  referred to as Flower Pot Rocks .  It is believed that the  certuries’  force of the Fundy Tides has carved these rocks into their flower pot shape from the cliff  and will continue to change them in the years to come.

The Rocks and the ocean floor  were interesting to see and the rocks  were huge!  I can’t even believe to tell you how huge they were.  The high tide that day was 40 feet at Hopewell Rocks  and low tide was 4ft. So, obviously, at high tide, you can only see the Rocks from the look out up top.  Afterwards I went into their restaurant and had a wonderful piece of pumpkin pie. Then it was  time to climb back in the car for the four hour trip back to Halifax for some last minute shopping and fly home .

Thanks for traveling with us through Nova Scotia and New Brunswick!

Hope you enjoyed it!

My Closing  Shot at the Rocks – Mother Nature was good to me with the soft cloud and sun’s rays!  That happened just by chance – it’s not a filter, honest !     : )

ALMA, NEW BRUNSWICK AND THE EXTREME FUNDY TIDES

Blue and Red Boat in Alma Wharf at Low Tide

Alma, my last coastal village before going back to Halifax, just might be my personal favorite.  It’s a small village that sits outside of Fundy National Park.   Alma’s Fundy extreme tides in the Harbor were incredible!  You’ll see which I mean from my photos taken at low tide, which was 2 feet, and then at high tide, which was 35 feet.

Besides taking photos of the harbor and walking the little town and the rocky beach at low tide,  I also went to see Cape Enrage and Hopewell Rocks which are nearby.  Cape Enrage is the tip of an island with jagged sea cliffs with an 1847 lighthouse, restaurant, gift shop  and zipline at the top. The bay water surrounding the tip is practically violent due to a buried reef, thus the name Cape Enrage.   I also  went to Hopewell Rocks but that  blog will follow.

Enjoy the photos showing off  Fundy’s extreme tides!
