Given that we took our trip to Fundy during the off season, many of the beaches were deserted. This was wonderful for us and we enjoyed roaming all over, drinking in the beauty of God’s creation. Of course, we were always careful to keep one eye on the tide…
One of our stops was Cape Enrage. Here a lighthouse and fog horn warn ships of dangerous rocks in bad weather.
Mary’s Point was another very quiet beach, but this one was sandy instead of rocky. We got to be here at both low tide and just after high tide. The land slopes so slowly in this location that the tide runs kilometres out. One would have to run to keep ahead of it as it came in!
Another spot of interest was Anderson Hollow Lighthouse. Actually not a functional lighthouse, this tiny replica and corresponding boat were built in honour of those who served as lighthouse keepers over the years.
Our final stop before leaving New Brunswick was a receded cove in a quiet spot: Herring Cove. It was beautiful here. Perhaps it was just the before-a-storm lighting and the hazy, almost fog combined with seaweed covered rocks backed by soaring cliffs, but something made it feel a bit “fjord-like.” It made me think a little of the pictures I’ve seen of Scandinavian ocean sides.
And what would a vacation from the perspective of a family of photographers be without a few pictures of photographers? 🙂
It was a wonderful family vacation! The only improvement for next time would be to have Stephen with us!
