We booked our Ferry reservations to go to the Rock for July 9th. We will pass by PEI and most of Nova Scotia until after we get back from Newfoundland . Reason is the weather, because the best time to be there is in July, so we gotta go now !

This morning Marion and Ed went for a 4km return walk on a boardwalk that crosses a sand-dune that separates a bay and Northumberland Strait. We could faintly see PEI from there. Then we rejoined Echo and Chuck and found that Echo had sprained her ankle doing housework!

Norm and Anne had spent two days with Chuck & Echo at Moncton and had just left for PEI that morning.

July 5,

Today we all went to the Bay of Fundy and walking along the bottom of the bay around the astonishing Hopewell Rocks at low tide. We actually had to get up at 6 to see this at 8:30 but it was well worth it and the highlight of NB. Then we had lunch and stuck around for high tide at 2:30 to watch kayaks go through the holes. It was the highest tide of the season and they only had a small hole to get through but they had no trouble.
