Hopewell Rocks, New Brunswick Day Weekend
July 31, 2011

So we decided to meet at Hopewell Cape for a picnic and to visit the signature tourist attraction of New Brunswick, which none of us except Sean had ever seen except in pictures. You go through the interpretation centre and down to a path along the shore, from which you can see how you really ought to see the site and what it looks like and who else is there (it was, after all, a holiday weekend), and get an ice cream at the concession stand, and finally, when the tide had gone down far enough, climb down to "the ocean floor," as they keep calling it and see that it actually is fairly spectacular with lots of strange shapes in the eroding rocks, , and lots to talk about and see before going back up to the picnic area for pie.
