Hopewell Rocks also known as Flower Pot RocksKayak or walk on the seabed.
Come and visit with me ~ The world's highest tides at Hopewell Rocks, Fundy, NB.
The park closed for the season on October 14. Whew, just in time for a friend to come and see it. She was visiting from Toronto over the long weekend and it's her first time in New Brunswick. I'm glad that she got to see this beautiful place.

The ocean at low-tide.
One of rocks looks like a dinosaur's head on this angle. Can you spot the man behind the rocks here? Isn't it humbling how small man is compared to these massive rocks?
Those black patches you see on the ground are sea weeds. They have air-packets that allows the plant to wave beautifully under water.

At evening time the waters becomes boisterous, starts to rise and slowly fills up the shore...
I've been here a couple of times and I never really inspected closer to the water. Yeah, I'm a bit of a sissy not wanting to dirty up my shoes. On my third visit this year, I became more adventurous... Oh no, mud on my boots! This was just the beginning. Mud brought out the child in me again. Funny how certain things, smell, color... can make the mind recall precious moments.
"Maybe next year, we can come back at high-tide and actually kayak?," I asked hubby with a cheeky smile and wide open eyes while raising and lowering my eyebrow. That would be quite something isn't it? O, something to look forward to next summer...
What do you look forward to?
