Hopewell Rocks: Walk Where the Fish Roam

Hopewell Rocks: Walk Where the Fish Roam

When I think of provinces with gorgeous coastlines in Canada, New Brunswick isn’t usually the first province to pop into my head. Even so, there is one stretch of shoreline along the Bay of Fundy in New Brunswick which is unlike any I’ve ever seen. Given that it spends most of its time underwater, it’s safe to say this experience was bound to be a unique one.

Saint John & Moncton – Welcome to the Maritimes

Saint John & Moncton – Welcome to the Maritimes

To say I am a morning person would be an outright lie. It was therefore a daunting thought to get up in time to leave by about 3 am on our drive out east. Not only did we have a roughly 11 hour drive ahead of us, but we had to pass by Montreal, where every time of day feels as busy as rush hour. By some miracle or other, it was easy to hop out of bed and get moving. With our adrenaline flowing, we were finally on our way!

Canadian National Parks Dream List

Canadian National Parks Dream List

With warmer weather fast approaching, I’m eager to venture outside and explore some of the national parks Canada has to offer. This year is a great time to do it, as they’ve released the national parks pass for free in celebration of Canada’s 150th! I don’t have the opportunity to visit nearly as many parks and historic sites as I’d like to this year, but it did get me thinking about my dream destinations list.

Hiking to the Carbide Willson Ruins in Gatineau Park

Hiking to the Carbide Willson Ruins in Gatineau Park

Around this time last year, my cousin Taylor came to visit and we trekked over to Gatineau Park to hike the Pink Lake trail. With my sister coming to visit for the May long weekend this year, I knew we needed to hike a different trail in Gatineau Park. Luckily, she was up for it.
