Hopewell Rocks and Sussex New Brunswick.

Unfortunately it was raining the day
we visited Hopewell Rocks.
We came prepared with ponchos,
 and had fun, enjoying this 
amazing adventure.

 The rocks are located at the 
Bay of Fundy at Hopewell Cape.
"Home of the highest tides
 in the world".

My sister Carol took most of the photos 
with her waterproof camera.
I did take a few with my phone.
 Although, It was raining too
 hard to use the phone.

At low tide, tourists may visit the rocks.

We walked down and
 up the 100 plus steps.
( 3 sisters all over 70 yrs. old.)

My first view of the rocks
and the ocean floor.
We were fortunate to
 arrive at low tide.

At high tide, the water is up
 to the top of the rocks.

We weren't alone.
There was a guided tour happening.

below, Annie in blue behind, 
hunting for rocks to paint, LOL
and she brought some home.
and me in the yellow, 
dripping with water.
It was pouring rain at this point.



I'd like to return in Sunshine.
Apparently miles of 
beautiful beaches to explore.

We rented part of a house in
 Sussex, New Brunswick.
A 160 yr. old house, very 
clean and well maintained.


Lots of room.

The bedrooms each had
 tree names on the door.

Most of my photos are blurred in the house,
maybe it's because of *Witch Hazel?

My Room

We were comfortable here.
Stayed 3 nights.
We brought our food and
 had kitchen service.
I didn't get a photo of
 the large kitchen.
Very economical 
when the price is 
split between us.

*Witch Hazel is a shrub used in medicine for
 skin disorders and other health problems. 
 It's beautiful flowers blossom in Winter. 
 Indigenous to our Northern colder regions.

I seem to be missing some photos
of this beautiful town.
Lots of beautiful shops, restaurants etc.

We were in walking distance to 
the Sussex Flea Market.
A flea market with over 800 vendors,  and 
lasts from Friday to Sunday each year, 
on the 3rd weekend of August.
We went for one day only. 
Surprisingly, we didn't buy much.

Lots of food trucks.

Looks like we ate a lot.

We didn't fill our carts, but
 didn't regret having them..
We didn't have to carry our water, 
lunch and purse while walking all day. 
We only covered about 1/2 of the market..

As most of you know, I love dishes.
One thing I did buy were
 these Victorian eggcups, 
used for hen and goose eggs. 
The can be inverted and each end used.
I will probably use them in
 an Easter decoration.

Sussex is home of the
 Iconic Barbours Company.
Tea, King Cole Tea, spices etc.

Lovely beaches along the way.


Lots of Acadian settled here.

Canada, New Brunswick and Acadian

Shediac is known as the 
"lobster capital of the world".

New Brunswick,
 a beautiful province to visit.
 Other places we visited in
 New Brunswick last year, 
with my daughter and family. 
click on the name to view.
Kingsbrae Gardens
St. Andrews By The Sea, 
Visiting Grand Manan Island
 and It's 3 Lighthouses, 

We hope to explore another
 Maritime province this year,
in our beautiful country.

Thanks for your visit xo.


  1. What a great adventure, it as a delight to explore with you through your eyes.

  2. You had a wonderful visit to NB from the looks of your pictures. The Rocks are amazing, aren't they? We have been there numerous times over the years because I'm from NB originally. It's a pity you didn't have a sunny day the day you were at Hopewell Cape. When we go over, we stay at my cousin's who lives in Shediac right down by the water. Then we drive into Moncton and Riverview to visit other family members. It's always a delight to go over! Nice pictures!

    1. Thanks Sandi. We are hoping to find a place to rent in Nova Scotia this Summer for about a week. A lot is booked up already. We would like a place with kitchen services. We want to eat minimum in restaurants because of allergies and costs. Hopefully we find something.
      Take care Thelma xo

  3. What a wonderful holiday! That was quite the walk and in the rain no less. Well done, you! I would have loved the town and market (and your egg cups are wonderful!). That's a lovely spot you found to rest your weary heads! What a wonderful idea. Apart from the rain it looks like it couldn't have been better!

  6. Thelma, what a beautiful place to visit. It reminds me somewhat of Alaska when we visited there. I love those kinds of flea markets but they are becoming scarce in our area..Happy Monday..xxoJudy

  7. Oh my goodness....I love this post! So many great photos. The bright colors of the buildings made me smile. The photos of the rocks while the tide was out were amazing! LOVE the water! I kayak, so being around water brings me joy. We live at the lake...not the same as an still a good thing. Wonderful!!!
