Walk on the Ocean Floor at Hopewell Rocks, Canada!

What’s more relaxing than walking on a beach?

img_2912Well at Hopewell Rocks in New Brunswick, Canada, they claim you can go one step better (no pun intended) and ‘Walk on the ocean floor.

img_2905The Rocks are located on the north shore of the Bay of Fundy, which boasts the highest tides in the World. The action of water rushing in and out of the bay for thousands of years has eroded the area’s dark-red sandstone cliffs, forming spectacular structures often referred to as the Flowerpot rocks. No prizes for figuring out why!

    How totally bizarre, Jaspa! They must be quite unique? I’ve often seen weird structures in landmass but never on the shore, that weren’t formed from rock. Many thanks for an interesting share. 🙂

    Looks like a fascinating place. The rocks make me think of a giants teeth. The narrow parts at the bottom of the rocks being the tooth roots.

  5. One of the many hidden gems of New Brunswick!
