H is for Hopewell Rocks



One of the world’s natural  wonders is the Fundy Bay that lies between the Canadian provinces of Nova Scotia and New Brunswick. It is on the New Brunswick side of the Fundy Bay that we find the Hopewell rocks. These magnificent rock formations spark the imagination. And twice a day, the beach they stand on is immersed by the tidal bore of the Fundy Bay ‘s high tides.

Here are some of these amazing rock formations and the beach that lies net the Fundy Bay.




On March 14, 2016, there was news the the largest rock, known at the Elephant Rock had cracked. I feel very fortunate that I was able to take pictures of it before this happened.

Bay of Fundy

The Bay of Fundy is one of the natural wonders of the world. The Fundy Tides are the highest on earth, changing 6 to 8 feet an hour and can rise and fall 50 feet – once every 12 and a half hours. Twice a day, one-hundred-billion tons of water flow into the Bay of Fundy, creating the Fundy Tides that overwhelm rivers that will reverse their direction. This is called the Tidal Bore.

Near the top of the Fundy Bay is Hopewell Cape and a collection of rock formations that have been carved from the sea that produces these intense tidal phenonom. Here are some of my favourite pictures of the Flowerpot Rocks at Hopewell Cape, New Brunswick.
