(Holden, ME) Hi 77 Lo 63 -- Today we left early for a five-hourdrive to New Brunswick, Canada. We've been wanting to see the extreme tides at the Bay of Fundy, where the difference between high and low tide is almost 50 feet. We had light rain most of the trip, but it was very enjoyable with lots of trees, great roads, and beautiful rolling countryside. We had no trouble going across the border, only a couple questions and we were on our way.
We're staying with Rick and Elaine, who live in Riverview, just outside of Moncton, NB and about 20 miles from Hopewell Rocks. After a warm greeting from Rick (Elaine was still at work), we hurried to Hopewell Rocks in time to see the high tide. Tomorrow morning we'll go back to see the low tide. We're kind of pressed for time this evening, and don't want to miss social time with Rick and Elaine, so we'll post a full report of our trip in tomorrow's blog. For now, here's one photo of the rocks at high tide, with a group of kayakers.
We had a nice dinner out with Rick and Elaine at the Homestead Restaurant, a great local place in town. We'll have much more to show and tell tomorrow night. Stay tuned.
