We left early and drove to Moncton, New Brunswick and went to Magnetic Hill. This is a road in Moncton that creates an optical illusion of coasting back up a hill in your car after first driving down that hill and placing your car in neutral and not applying the brakes. It does feel like a magnet is pulling you back up the hill. From there we drove to Hopewell Cape and went down to the ocean floor to view the Hopewell Rocks (the Hopewell Flower Pots). This is one of the most dramatic examples of what the tides do in New Brunswick. The Hopewell Rocks are probably the most advertised scenic view in New Brunswick. These rocks have been molded, eroded and shaped for hundreds of years by the tides and they are beautiful. Hopefully, some of our pictures will show the true beauty of this natural occurrence. From Hopewell, we drove to Cape Rage and took a picture of one of the most photographed lighthouses in New Brunswick. We drove 15-20 miles over some of roughest and steepest roads to see this lighthouse. Then we ate at the Tides Restaurant on the beach in Alma, New Brunswick where you could see Nova Scotia right across the bay. From here we drove through Bay of Fundy National Park en-route back to St Martins. Tomorrow, we will be leaving New Brunswick for Prince Edward Island for a few days.
