We are back in New Brunswick, and have saved the best for last. We did view the Bay of Fundy from Nova Scotia, but the New Brunswick side is where all the real beauty is. There are two main areas to view the Bay of Fundy, from Hopewell Rocks Provincial Park, and Fundy National Park.

We started at Hopewell Rocks:

Very Scenic, but busy

The Bay of Fundy is home to the highest tides in the world at 48 feet. During low tide you can walk on the ocean floor, 6 hours later, they close the access and this area is underwater.

These stairs are coated with seaweed, so they are partially submerged at high tide

After studying a map of the 2km long beach area, it appeared they were not connected- We wanted to walk the entire beach. After speaking to a Park Ranger, who will remain unnamed, she gave us a little bit of info that perhaps she was not supposed to. “The beaches do not officially connect, there are signs that say Do Not Enter in the middle, but it is possible to climb thru a window in the rocks, lots of people do it”  Well ok, thanks for the info.

After emerging on the other side, we were away from the hordes of people, and had a beach just to ourselves.

Bay of Fundy mud is like glue, your foot sinks about 8 inches, and the mud does not let go. Your sandals become stuck, and its hard to pull your foot out as the suction of the mud is so strong. But this is part of the Fundy experience.

After rinsing off, and changing our clothes as we were covered in mud, we drove 45 minutes west to Fundy National Park

This is the last boring Canadian National Park sign. U.S National parks at least have unique signs

As we had already experience the beach part, we opted for the inland attractions in the National Park. The mud was fun…. once.

Dickson Falls must be one of the most relaxing, beautiful places in all of Canada. None of these shots are photo-shopped, this is the real deal.

Dickson falls is a beautiful spot, and a must visit if you are in the area.

Not sure what's going on here.

To finish off the Park, we had a look from Wolfe Point.
