Bay of Fundy

The primary destination for this trip was Fundy National Park and the Bay of Fundy. The National Park was amazing with incredible scenery and so much to see and do. The Park showcases a rugged coastline which rises up to the Canadian Highlands. The camping facilities put US NPs to shame.

Hiking was spectacular with challenging climes up the bay side cliffs leading to thrilling views,

Just outside the park sits the village of Alma, New Brunswick. Tucked away in this quaint fishing village is Holly Whale Brewing company that offers a variety of brews and great sea food and incredibly reasonable prices. I had a plate of fresh scallops that was to die for.

Heading east along the coast is the scenery and topography changes by the minute. The friendly people you encounter reflect a comfortable slow-paced costal life.

The Bay of Fundy experiences the highest tides in the world. The starkest evidence of this is found at Hopewell Rocks Provincial Park. The park is home to twenty free-standing sea stacks (also called flowerpots) and walking along on the shore has the feel of being on another planet.
