Never going to forget this 😭
Humpbacks are my fave 🐋❤️
Here are 2 swimming side by side. They come up for air about 4 times to fill their lungs before diving down deep to feed. Watch for their tails, a characteristic of humpbacks ✨
Another beautiful humpback 🐋 in the Bay of Fundy last week.
It was a truly special morning with @quoddylinkmarine and their friendly and super knowledgeable guides and naturalists. According to the staff at Quoddy, it’s been an amazing summer for whale watching in the Bay of Fundy this year. One naturalist wrote on their sightings blog that in 17 seasons working with them she hasn’t seen a summer this good for whale activity. So, if you happen to be in the area, on the New Brunswick side of the bay or over in Nova Scotia, you should get out there! Seriously, I had never been whale watching until last week and I was in awe, especially when one of the humpbacks was so close to the boat we could have been in conversation (see my last post). If you’re in St. Andrew’s by the Sea I highly recommend the professionals at Quoddy. And no, I’m not being paid for this post or the last one. I paid full price for the tour. I just feel it’s important to spread the word about good tour operators and to help travellers and wildlife lovers make good choices when they travel. Be sure to reserve well in advance! My friend and I arrived last minute without reservations but were fortunate to get on the waiting list and have two people cancel. Hooray!
Another adventure has come and gone, and yet again, I’ve barley posted any of it. I find it a constant challenge to capture the moment while also experiencing it in real time. Every second is so precious, I simply can’t justify missing a single one because I’m lost in my phone conjuring up the perfect caption... .
My new motto is; capture it, experience it, post it later. I introduce to you my first, #thistimelastweek post. It’s a rarity for me to be in front of the camera, so thanks @jonathan.c.wright for capturing my awe of the tides. #BayOfFundy#NovaScotia#RoadTrip#NewIdeas#TryingSomething
Flowerpot Rock at Fownes Head on the Fundy Trail Parkway in New Brunswick.
While most people know about the famous Hopewell Rocks, not as many know about the Fundy Trail Parkway.
This photo is just one of the first sights along the parkway which includes hiking, waterfalls, trails, suspension bridges, sea caves, historic sites, rivers and more.
For outdoor enthusiasts and hikers, you could easily spend an entire day or even several days exploring the entire parkway. You can check @fundytrail or @destinationnb for detailed maps.
We did an entire day starting at @algonquinstandrews and ending at @deltabymarriottbeausejour which made for perfect stops on both ends of the parkway.
