For our family vacations, we decided, this year, to explore New Brunswick. I had wanted to see the Bay of Fundy for a long time. It’s a gorgeous coast. With its highest tides in the world, it’s a sight one remembers.
We went to Hopewell Rocks, a park where you can walk on the ocean floor at low tide and see the interesting rock formations shaped by the strong tides. I would have spent a lot more time there. Only downside to such a place, every tourist has to access it at the same time, before the tide rises again, and that makes it very crowded. But definitely worth seeing! I loved the brownish tones of the rocks and water, they called one of the rivers there, the chocolate river, when all the water has gone, all is left is warm brown mud. I wore kayak neoprene shoes, that was a brilliant idea, since you just have to rinse with water, and the mud is gone! Best invention ever those shoes!
There’s also little caves to explore here and there at Hopewell Rocks, the boys had fun going through them. You can kayak through the rocks at high tide, but we didn’t get to do it this time, it must be incredible though!
New Brunswick has gorgeous, endless beaches too! The water is not as warm as I expected it to be. They sell the place saying the Gulf Stream warms the waters, but maybe on that day, we weren’t on the warm current track. We had fun anyway and on a beautiful day as this one was, cool water was perfectly fine.
We also visited the town of Shediac. We had a great lobster dinner and got to learn about the life cycle of the lobster and about lobster fishing. There’s a wharf nearby where you can walk along and see the boats and have good food as well!
Finally, just before our trip ended, we caught a little rain, just enough to give us a rainbow 🙂
Goodbye New Brunswick! You were good to us! We’ll see each other again xox
