Canadian Maritime Visit, Day 1
Cherryfield to Hopewell Cape, NB
We cross the border at Calais into St. Stephen, New Brunswick
and soon Wren starts taking "short cuts" so we can see the "real Canada"
Alma on the Bay of Fundy gives us a sense of the tides and a taste of Canada's fishing villages.
They have to tie supports under the boats to keep them upright when the tide falls
We finally arrive at the Hopewell Rocks on the Bay of Fundy where the tide is down nearly 40 feet
We walked down a long way before we even got to the stairs
The tide rises 6 to 8 feet per hour, but since they close at 8 p.m. we couldn't stay to see it rise.
On to Day 2, or back to the Trip Index
