Canada, N. B., Fundy National Park, 7/29/12

Canada, N. B., Fundy National Park, 7/29/12: On the Road Again Sunday July 29 after stopping at Tim Horton's for coffee and using their Wi Fi.

Flower outside Fundy National Park's Visitor Center.

We crossed the covered bridge (restricted to vehicle less than 24 feet).

The inlet of water we crossed going through the covered bridge.

To Pointe Beach

We hiked along the beach and saw another traveler...Always warms my heart.

Amazingly clear water gives a reflection of the majestic spruce. It smells so good.

Fog has 10 times the acid of RAIN. Manufacturing causes acid in the air and can some day it is projected to lead to killing of the native trees.

Onto Herring Cove.

This area harvested LOTS of herring starting in the 1850's. But the logging business created water diversions and killed off the herring industry.

Boats waiting for high tide.

In the town of Alma.

Onto Cape Enrage. The first lighthouse here was built in 1840.

The lighthouse is high above Chignecto Bay which leads into the Bay of Fundy. Tides can rise 53 feet. Highest in the world.

We walked down 99 steps to the rock covered beach.

Some of the rocks are covered with bladderwrack.

There were gals repelling down the walls. Before leaving we chatted with a couple from Colorado. They plan to be on the road for a least a year. They are seeing the US and Canada. Neat couple.

The beautiful view out our back doors at our campsite at Ponderosa Pines Campground, Hopewell Cape. Very nice, clean place, Bathroom facilities are very limited AND the showers are a little trickle. Visited with our camping neighbors and shared lots of traveling stories. They are from near Minneapolis. Have also talked to many from Canada; Quebec, New Brunswick and Ontario.

Excited to walk on the ocean floor tomorrow, but guess we did do it already today.
Location:Fundy National Park and Cape Enrage
