Birthday Walk

Hampton is the perfect place for a walk on the shore.  It has it all, picturesque wharf, cobbles (small), cottages (but not too many), streams to ford (at low tide), and easy access.  Yesterday was a grey day, but oh so warm: imagine 18˚C in November!  It is a popular spot and even late in the season you may meet others. We met two couples, but few people venture far down the shore.  And for solitude, explore east of the wharves, along the grey basalt of the Bay of Fundy shore. [more on basalt in a future post]

Hampton is located on the Bay of Fundy, between the valley towns of Annapolis Royal and Bridgetown. Check the maps.
