We left St. John a few days early and were able to secure a site at Fundy National Park near Alma. We opted to drive to our last few things to do with the motorhome on the way. This is the St. Martin Sea Caves. The tides here are about 35 feet. At low tide the area is completely accessible and you can run on the rocky beach and enter the caves. At high tide none of this is visible!Â
The caves were so cool. You could see the normal water lines. It was creepy to think in a few hours this will all be full of water.
I found it neat that they were very round. It must of started with a tiny whole and got bigger of thousands of years.
At the end we collected more water samples and some different algae and sea plants to look at under the microscope when we go to Fundy.
We also drove the Fundy Trail in St. Martin. We left the motorhome at the sea caves and unhitched the car and just took that. We stopped at many pull-outs but the waterways rainy so it was hard to see much. We did a short hike to see a suspension bridge over the Big Salmon River.
It is weird at low tide to see all the boats just sitting in mud waiting for the tide to bring them to life. Life really revolves around the tides here.
On the way out we had to cross through this covered bridge…with the motorhome…towing the car… we are 3.6 meters high. We all held our breath. Terrifying! But COOL!
We barely fit (not really but it felt that way!).
