Beautiful Bay of Fundy
On our way travelling from Manitoba to Nova Scotia this last summer we got to stop at a couple different places along the Bay of Fundy and explore! We went out of our way to travel to the Sea Caves in the Village of St. Martin’s, New Brunswick.
It was amazing to see how the water carved out these huge caves and when tide was out we were able to climb and explore. It was so fun!
Getting in the bus again we kept travelling on and were wanting to spend the night in Fundy National Park but the campgrounds were booked up. (It happened to be a long weekend in the summer--figures!) So we continued on and were able to make it to Hopewell Rocks that evening (just in time for low tide again!)
We made it to Hopewell Rocks (also known as the Flowerpot Rocks) close to Moncton, New Brunswick, around 7:00 PM. The provincial park had just closed, so we parked outside the gates and walked in. We had the place just about to ourselves!
The Bay of Fundy at this spot has a tidal range of 48 feet, meaning that we walk on the ocean floor at low tide and at high tide the water is 48 feet deep! It was awe-inspiring to see these towering rocks over our heads that had been carved by the water tides.
It was such a fun time to experience as a family this beautiful creation God made.
