On August 5th we arrived at Ponderosa Pines Campground in New Brunswick on the Bay of Fundy. We were there to visit Hopewell Rocks and see the famous Bay of Fundy Tides.. We were not disappointed. We walked on the ocean floor at low tide, the tall rocks known as the Flower Pots were HUGE. We came back later in the day to find those same rocks almost submerged in the water. It is really amazing the amount of water that flows in and out of that area. The tide was 32 feet when we were there. It gets as high as 50 something !!!! The ocean floor is rocks and mud. The kids had a good time playing in the mud. Thankfully they did have places to wash off your feet. We wore Crocs and managed to stay clean.

August 7th we moved to Kiwanis Ocean Front RV Park in Saint Andrews, New Brunswick. We were on the front row with an ocean view. The tide was only 22 feet here. Downtown was just a short walk away, so we explored downtown several times. We also did a short bike trail in town (the Van Horne Trail). We enjoyed taking pictures of the restored lighthouse. It has been replaced by modern lights in the harbor.
