Today we drove from Halifax to Moncton to Hopewell Cape to see Hopewell Rocks.

Hopewell Rocks are on the Bay of Fundy, and are where you can see the highest tides in the world. You can also walk on the sea floor and look up at giant rock formations.

The tidal erosions form giant flowerpots out of the rocks at the site. So you have a combination of giant rock formations, and the impressive visuals of the waterline well above your head as you walk on the sea floor.

To get a sense of the highest tides in the world we were told it’s about as high as a four story building.

We’re on the 5th floor of the hotel we’re staying in – and looking down to the ground I’m getting a good sense of just how much water must move in and out of the Bay of Fundy every few hours. Lots.
