East Coast Wanderfolk Series: Hopewell Rocks

east-coast-wanderfolk-series

One of the things I miss most about the summer – in addition of course to the beach, warm ocean, sunshine, late nights, and feet in my sand – is getting to go on adventures every weekend.

While our province is beautiful during all four seasons, I don’t do cold well and let’s all agree – it can be HARD to get motivated to go on winter adventures if you’re more of a beach bum. Or in my case – a salt water craving mermaid.

Of course, to fight cabin fever, it’s important to get out once and awhile, which is exactly what we did this past weekend when the forecast predicted temperatures above zero. Following a tasty Sunday brunch, we took a little drive out to the beautiful Hopewell Rocks.

These flower pot beauties are one of my favorite local attractions during the summer months and if you’ve never been, they’re an absolute MUST if you’re visiting. Heck, they’re a must if you’re a local and you’ve never been.

And did I mention they’re magic? And by magic, I mean, with our incredible Bay of Fundy’s highest tides in the world, in only a few hours, the changing tides will allow you to walk on the ocean floor when low.

Let me provide a throwback photo I took in the summer of 2014 for context of what they look like at low tide, because spoiler, we went at high tide. img_0091

Pretty neat, huh? 

Check out some our snapshots from our Sunday winter drive!

If you’re looking for a fun weekend destination under an hour from the city, I highly recommend checking out the Rocks in the winter. Although fair warning – the trails were super icy when we visited.

Stay Salty ↟ Stay Wild
