The boats tied up at the wharf in Alma, NB.
On Wednesday I drove my sister and brother to beautiful
Alma and Fundy National Park on the Bay of Fundy.
The tail end of Hurricane Isaac decided to pay us a visit
that day with torrential rain in that part of the province.
The roads were full of water in the ruts which made it
treacherous for driving but we got there and back safely.
And we managed to take some pictures, mostly from the

The waves weren't bad here but the wind and rain beat
down on us as we walked out the wharf for a few snapshots.
It was high tide and the boats were up level with the wharf.

There wasn't a soul around on this dreary rainy day.
I guess it's also the end of the season for most campers and
tourists but the park is open for a few more weeks.

Yes, this is natural colour. It was that gray a day!
People have been building Inukshuks on this beach
all summer. Some were three and four feet high.
The waves and tides will eventually knock them all down.
We wished the day was nicer as the drive from Moncton
to Alma is beautiful and passes through some wonderful
However, we did enjoy ourselves reminiscing and talking
about life and our memories of trips here as children.
Do you have favourite places that you like to revisit
from your childhood?
Enjoy the weekend.
