A Trip to the Rocks at Hopewell Cape

Hi folks and welcome to a visit to "The Rocks" at Hopewell Cape not far from Fundy National Park ....it has likely been twenty years since we last visited this beautiful spot on the Bay of Fundy ...and...WOW what a surprise . In the past we would drive up and park and head to the observation area and if the tide was out we would scamper down the stairs to the water's edge and frolic in and about the rocks.
Well much has changed ...three large parking areas and and a gate where we had to pay to play amongst the "Rocks" and then we came face to face with a huge gift shop and restaurant ............and who can resist the aroma of freshly cooked bacon and eggs.(not Roger & Lorieta)...so after a hearty breakfast and some strong coffee we headed out to find all the other changes that have been made to enhance this "Playground"
There are many trails and stairways to the floor of this beautiful area...and I will let the few photos we took tell the rest of the story ...
Happy traveling to all
Roger & Lorieta
