Jul 20, 2016 - Fundy National Park

We then spent three days camped in Fundy National Park. It is near Moncton NB. The Bay of Fundy i know for its extreme tides. We took lots of pictures, so I'll save the words... lol On the last day there I took a photography class. Very interesting, hopefully I will have some better pictures coming up.

May 30, 2016 - Nova Scotia to New Brunswick to Prince Edward Island

From the title I think you can tell we covered a lot of territory today. We did make several stops along the way , but it was a lot of time on the bus. The highlight of the day was at Hopewell Cape in New Brunswick at the Bay of Fundy. The Fundy tides are the highest on earth, rising and falling as much as 50 feet. Twice each day one hundred billion gallons of water flow into the Bay of Fundy. These tides overpower the rivers and reverse their flow twice per day. The water flows in very rapidly, (saw a fast motion video that showed a rise...

Jul 25, 2015 - We Survived New Brunswick

Well the last two days have wrapped up our time in New Brunswick. And we can say we survived! We have the most of the kinks worked out with the RV and have not yet labelled it the "Rolling Turd" (again, a Robin Williams reference). Yesterday had us moving from Grand Falls to the Bay of Fundy National Park. More trees, more hills, more rock and more trees, more hills and more rock. It's crazy how different the landscape is here. We made two potato stops along the way, one at Potato World and another a small family owned processing plant...

Jun 13, 2015 - Fundy National Park, New Brunswick

We decided to purchase a discovery pass for the National Parks and National Historic Sites across Canada. It was arguably one of, if not the best purchase we made for our trip, with plenty of National Parks and countless National Historic Sites across the country, our discovery pass gave us access and motivation to see and do more. One of our first parks in the Maritimes was Fundy National Park, home to the most extreme tidal changes as well as beautiful scenery. A few good days of hiking and camping to get the trip really off to a great start

Oct 14, 2013 - Blog Eight - Fundy Area

BLOG EIGHT Note from the Perce Blog… After reviewing footage of the “Bobcat” and conducting additional research DRS has come back with a change in decision and the cat we saw was definitely a Canadian Lynx. It’s bigger and furrier than the bobcat, although of the same family. We were very lucky to see it as it’s mostly nocturnal – quite a buzz. WEDNESDAY – 9 Oct 13 We had to leave our little slice of paradise today so we had breakkie and packed up. However we went over to say hooray to our hosts and also to use their internet. After...

Sep 15, 2012 - Bay of Fundy

Bay of Fundy is a splt in the land between Nova Scotia and New Brunswick separated by water. The bay is known for it's extreme tidal changes. It's actually one of the greatest in the world sometimes reaching 50ft tide differences between low and high tide. Folklore claimed the tides in the Bay of Fundy are caused by a giant whale splashing in the water. But it's really all about the moon and it's gravity and the distance waves have to travel. Today we have traveled to Fundy National Park on the Bay of Fundy. We got here around 5pm and low...

Jun 28, 2012 - Touring New Brunswick

We left Saint John in a total fog this morning. We drove the scenic route through St. Martens, a quaint little town on the New Brunswick coast. They have several covered bridges on the main route which are high enough for our rigs to go through. I couldn’t imagine I would ever be driving my rig through a covered bridge! We drove down to the beach which was covered with large stones – no sand. The view was spectacular – large caves in the side of the hillsides. A restaurant there claimed the best clam chowder in the world, but they weren’t...

Aug 8, 2011 - Going to Fundy

Left L’Assomption today heading east towards Fundy National Park. On the way we stopped at the tourist information center just inside New Brunswick and in Waterborough, NB at Fanjoy’s Point. By the time we made it to Fundy there was tons of fog and Mike was sure we were lost. Turns out we had almost found the campground when he decided to turn around and head back to the entrance to see if he could find some directions. Here is today's photo album:...

Aug 16, 2010 - The Fundy Trail, New Brunswick

The Bay of Fundy’s most impressive feature is the tides. Due to freak of geography the tides here are amplified and can be as high as 50 feet and that means a lot of water moving pretty fast in a 12 hour period. Miles of beaches are quickly covered and empty harbours with stranded boats are filled almost as you watch. Another strange phenomenon is reversing falls where the water falls one way at low tide and then the other direction at high tide – pretty unique.

Aug 5, 2010 - Hopewell Rocks/Fundy National Park

The drive from Pugwash to Hopewell Rocks was not a long one. We chose to drive down to Rte. 104, hoping to avoid more of the bumpiness of Hwy. 6. So, it was quicker, even though a little farther. We stopped at the Visitor’s Center on the border of New Brunswick, mainly to learn what the tide schedule was for the day and if it would be worthwhile to stop at Hopewell Rocks before driving to the Fundy National Park. We found we had about 1-1/2 hours from the Visitor’s Center to the rocks and would arrive in time for low tide and that there...

Aug 26, 2008 - Enroute to Moncton

Today was a busy driving day from Saint John. We went east via St. Martins to see the sandstone caves and two covered bridges. Fundy National Park was two hours away. We did one long hike, which went along the Bay for part of the trail, and did a shorter trail to a waterfall. We then drove through pouring rain to get to the Hopewell Rocks. We arrived around 5:30pm, when the park was about to close at 6:00pm. Luckily the rain had stopped and we didn't have to pay admission. We were able to see the flowerpots from above, then headed out...

Maritimes 2008

Aug 20, 2007 - Bay of Fundy

We really liked the Bay of Fundy area. Stayed at a Ponderosa Pines Campground (how many Ponderosa Pines can there be???) Had a great walking path out to the ocean - watched tide going out. The "flowerpots" are huge sections of soil, granite, rock that haven't been eroded yet by the tides. When the tide is out, you can walk on the beach and flowerpots. When the tide is in anywhere from 30-50 feet of water comes in and the pots look like little islands!!! High tide occurs every 12 hours and 52 minutes. This was a nice relaxing area. Found Ha...
