Alma ~ gateway to Fundy National Park




Alma is the village at the gateway to Fundy National Park.  There is a wharf with pretty fishing boats and it is known for the highest tides in the world (along with the Bay of Fundy) which it sits on.  Alma has many B&B's, motels, cottages, restaurants with great seafood, the famous Kelly's Bake Shop (known for it's sticky buns) and quiet charm of a resort town.  It's pretty quiet in the winter of course but the tourist season keeps this place hopping the rest of the year.  




This rocky bluff is known as Owls Head.  The fog was just rolling in.

This is the inner side of the harbour where some sea kayaks were just heading out.


Alma Beach.

Looking to the right and the road into the park.  That treed bluff is where I took the photo of the Red Chairs looking towards Owls Head.  




And that was our day at Fundy National Park (in case you missed this post) and Alma.  We drove through the park to the other end and to Sussex for supper at the golden arches (a treat!) and ice cream for dessert (another treat!!) then the 1 1/2 hour drive home - hot, tired and full.  

We had a rain day yesterday but the sun is shining this morning as the clouds clear off.  I hope you are having a great week and enjoying these last days of August.  Thank you for visiting and your comments.

Blessings,
Pam

  10. We're getting the rain today and boy has it ever been coming down! I enjoyed your pictures of Alma. Haven't been there in a couple of years. I love that part of Hillsborough. There is so much rugged beauty. A couple of years ago my aunt and uncle drove us down to St Martins where we saw all that gorgeous rock. My parents had used that rock years ago for building the fireplace in our first home in Riverview. So many memories! Thanks for sharing. I always enjoy seeing your pictures of NB.

    Blessings,

  15. Just commented on the first part of the visit in your previous post - brought back memories.
    Love these pix Pamela - the fog rolling in, the water sparkling along the shoreline, and the fishing boats. Kayaking must be perfect there too.
    Just all so peaceful and lovely by the bay.

  29. ABsolutely gorgeous Pamela. I just love seeing this part of New Brunswick. It is such a hidden gem that many people are not aware of really. Gorgeous.

  30. Colourful boats and a craggy shoreline enhanced by the fog rolling in.

  31. I like when the fog is rolling in and covers so much. It looks mysterious - and somehow very beautiful. The boats on the water look calm and peaceful, a beautiful atmosphere.

  32. What a beautiful place! I would love to visit this area one day. I saw a small portion of the Bay of Fundy when we took our one and only cruise to Canada for our 30 wedding anniversary, almost 11 years ago! We visited Nova Scotia, then New Foundland and sailed down the St Lawrence River to Quebec City. It was all so beautiful!
