Day 3: Unbelievable
I had a great sleep last night where I was a Guest with my friend Toni with an "i"'s family, Kathy, Dave and their daughter, Kim. This morning was the day Kathy, Toni and I headed out to make our way back to Ontario. Toni and I back home, and Kathy to visit her parents.
We headed out by 7:30 this morning.
We were making our way back to Ontario with a stop first at Hopewell Rock, New Brunswick. Along the way the tide had left the river beds empty.
We could not resist stopping here where all the colours had caught our eye. The funny thing was that the chap that owns and makes all these birdhouses told us his wife was from Clifford, Ontario !
Finally we had left Nova Scotia and made it to Hopewell Rock at the Bay of Fundy in NB.
Toni & I, Kathy & Toni, the floor of the Bay of Fundy, which is fed by the Alantic Ocean. Seaweed anyone?
Squishy muddy clay I walked through as I made my way to stand in the red waters of the Bay of Fundy.
Within 20 minutes the large rock pictured here had water up to it with the Tide coming in. Barnacles were found attached to rocks. Do you see the "drumstick" in the large rock crevice? and how fortunate was I to find a "goldfish" on the floor of the Bay of Fundy?
All the wonders and formations I was able to witness was unbelievable.
Off down the road we stopped again this time to check out this Covered Bridge .... over across the field were some people out on a trail ride with their horses.
This stop was at Alma, New Brunswick where we entered the Fundy National Park to continue on our journey.
Where is this? Grand Falls, NB where our Motel room overlooks the beautiful gorge.
The "highlight" of my day was being given these Crabs by my friend Toni with an "i" so as not to feel too lonely without my "Crabby Cabbie".
I have been having so much fun with the girls on our trek back to Ontario and back home, "Just North of Wiarton & South of the Checkerboard".
