Covehead Harbour Lighthouse

After eating at Richard’s Fresh Seafood this evening in Covehead Harbour, we walked about 2 minutes down the road and explored the site of the Covehead Harbour Lighthouse. The sun was descending low in the sky and there was such a beautiful golden hour glow forming when I took this photo.

Built in 1967 and located beside the entrance to Covehead Bay, this lighthouse is located inside the Prince Edward Island National Park. There is a plaque on the side of the lighthouse describing the Yankee Gale and remembering those who perished in the storm. There is a path across the dunes to the beach. Enjoy a nice walk but confine your swimming to the superivised areas for your safety. The undertow can be strong, dangerous and unpredictable.

A Marine Wonder of the World: Hopewell Rocks

We arrived in Hopewell Cape, on the Bay of Fundy, this afternoon and checked into our hotel. It’s conveniently located only 1.7 kilometres from the Hopewell Rocks.

The Hopewell Rocks, also called the Flowerpots Rocks, is one of the Marine Wonders of the World and is the site of some of the World’s Highest Tides. These rock formations are caused by tidal erosion in The Hopewell Rocks Ocean Tidal Exploration Site and they stand 40–70 feet tall.

The Hopewell Rocks is a place to pause…a place to appreciate a remarkable story interwoven through time, tide, and the intricacies of nature. These are the highest tides in the world. And they happen twice a day….every day.

The interpretive staff at the park (called the Hopewell Rocks Provincial Park) are are very friendly and they are located at key areas to answer any questions you may have. In addition to the opportunity to walk on the ocean’s floor, the park features two sandy beach areas at either end of the park and a number of well-marked walking trails.

What visit to New Brunswick could be complete until you’ve witnessed the natural wonder of the Bay of Fundy and learned the fascinating story behind its world-famous tides? The Hopewell Rocks is a magical place for your imagination to play…the only place where you can become a part of that story.

Percé Rock, Gaspé Peninsula

Most of the footage for this 4K drone video was captured at dawn. That means that I had to get up just before sunrise, which was just before 4:30 a.m. It was definitely worth it – not just for the early morning light but to see the birds and sea life come to life. I hope I was able to cinematize the magic of Percé Rock in the morning within these 3 min 56 sec.
