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!
