Herring Cove Beach Exploration at Fundy National Park
The first full day we were at Fundy National Park, we joined in on another ranger-led program at Herring Cove Beach. The program began at 10:30am. We got there just after 11am and spotted the group down at the beach.
They were all looking for creatures and wildlife under rocks and shells. Thank goodness we brought Kai’s bathing suit bottoms and water shoes.
After the hike down wooden stairs, we came to a very muddy and rocky area. It was low tide, so we were standing on the ocean floor.
Herring Cove Beach was pretty magnificent!
Exploring the ocean floor was very fun. You do have to be aware and watch your step because the rocks are pretty sharp.
The rangers did a wonderful job. They asked everyone to find creatures. Afterwards, they collected all the specimens and explained what it was everyone found:)
It was a fun morning of exploration at Herring Cove Beach with the Fundy National Park rangers.
Our second day at Fundy National Park was very eventful! It was nice to participate in another ranger-led program. The story time our first evening there was aimed at kids, and this particular program was appropriate and appealed to people of all ages!
Alma Town Exploration
After our Herring Cove Beach exploration, we decided to eat lunch back at our campsite. Then, it was almost nap time for our two-year old son, Kai.
We decided to head into town (Alma) and walk around a little. We bought some groceries at the little market at the gas station, called the Fundy General Store. They carried produce and bottled water = essentials.
When Kai napped, we did some light souvenir shopping. I was in search for a mug for the camper. There were plenty of mugs but none I liked. Unfortunately, no luck!
