I LOVE this area of New Brunswick, merging into the Fundy area, as it is incredibly beautiful in June. The Hopewell Rocks are part of what is the largest tidal bore on the earth; the tide goes out and comes in at breakneck pace and amazing depths. To stand on the ocean floor around these "Rocks" when the tide is out is only surpassed when they are submerged and able to be kayaked around. The tide rises 46 feet at a full moon, so you can only imagine the dramatically shifts to this landscape twice a day! The visitor center is informational and good. There's a small gift shop and restaurant here, too. It's a bummer to have to pay to see natural phenomena like this, but someone has to keep the place looking great! There's a fair amount of walking to do, and on a beautiful day like the one we had, you'll walk until the very loud tide horn beckons you to safety.
