The Hopewell Rocks, also called the Flowerpot Rocks, are formations caused by tidal erosion. The bases of the formations are covered by water twice a day. At low tide you can walk on the beach (sea floor). High tide can be as high as 52 feet giving this area one of the highest average tides in the world. Average tidal height change is about 40 feet. At high tide, kayakers go into the formations and through the natural arches of the “flowerpots”. Like many of the days here in Canada, the sky was overcast. It's fine for walking and sightseeing, but the pictures are not bathed in sunshine.
We stayed overnight near here in Alma, New Brunswick, and had the best haddock, mussels, and clam dinner ever. Yum!
