Hopewell Rocks, Bay of Fundy

On Monday, Joe and I headed to Hopewell Rocks along the Bay of Fundy, approximately a half hour drive south of Moncton. This is a very cool spot where the tides rise 14 meters every day and have worn out the sandstone rock faces in bizarre formations. The bigger rocks will last a couple of centuries before the erosion actions finally bring them down. The rate at which the tides come in is very fierce. We walked from one end of the flats, through the rocks and further down the beach. We looked behind us and saw the Bay water covering up the spot we had been walking over only five minutes before.

The tide is out...

Flowerpot Rocks

The tide is coming in...only 14 meters to go!

We headed back to Moncton, did some quick shopping and started are trek to Joe's mom's place in Borden-Carleton, PEI.
