Fridaaaaay!… aka Some Ado About Mudflats

Meanwhile, back at the New Brunswick Road Trip…

Daniels Flats Leg (Hopewell Cape)~

Three minutes up the road from the Hopewell Rocks, just past McGinleys Corner, is Hopewell Cape. Do I really need to give you the km/mileage on that? It’s a spit up the road from Lover’s Arch and a bear looking at an alien worm coming right up out of the ocean floor Bear Rock. Just a spit, man!

And Hopewell Cape is where I took these clicks of Daniels Flats (4 km/2.5 miles wide and stretching to Grindstone Island), or Daniel’s Flats. I’ve seen it both ways, so take your pick. It’s one of the three major mudflats bordering Shepody Bay.

Thanks for that last shot, G-Man!

Here’s a link to the Fundy Biosphere Reserve and all things mudflats. And shorebirds. The mudflats are key to the migration of shorebirds. Poke around. Who wants to work on Friday anyway?!

I didn’t say that.

Nope. Not me.

Next stop — Moncton!
