Bay of Fundy water swirls in and out of the Minas Basin every 12 hours. We planned to arrive shortly before the switch from incoming high tide. As we waited, we watched the rare moment the surge quiets and turbulence calms. We were there!
They don't call it Cape Split for Nothing. NOT suitable for pets and small children or those who fear heights.
Barely discernible are the smaller pillars of the rocky outcrop.
Looking down gives you a funny feeling. Had to peer over belly-down!
Water dropping rapidly. An easy gully to climb down. Let's go!
Found objects, made and arranged by humans.
This little grotto shows some of the cool geometric shapes of the rock formations. Anybody know what it is?
Cape Split is not a morning stroll. Plan to spend a whole day here and WEAR COMFORTABLE SHOES !
Sedimentary, Igneous or Metamorphic? We just know we like it and there's nothing like this in New Hampshire.
So quiet, that you here the sound of bird's wings as they fly overhead.
Some harder rock rolled around for years to shape this. Every new cove reveals a geologic anecdote.
Who can resist peeking into a sea cave? Not Dave!
Trees do not grow down, do they? The sea cave has a topsy turvy stump.
My favorite moment of today. We just sat and listened...You could hear a loon diving for fish (but not see it), A flock of birds flew overhead,,,wings whistling and two ravens conversed across a cove in throaty phrases.
A steep inaccessible cove (water barely visible in lower right)...not more than a few feet of buffer between the footpath and a sheer drop. The beauty lures you to take an extra step just to glimpse more. This grey day was spectacular none-the-less.
