Waterfalls on the Bay of Fundy

Yesterday we had a delightful surprise – Waterfalls!  Like rainbows they come after the rain…lots of rain.  We found ourselves along the Bay of Fundy coast just a couple kilometres west of Port George and Cottage Cove.  The beach here is of cobbles and larger rocks.  As always on a beach you can go for a long time or a short time.  Sunday though, once we landed on the beach it was impossible to resist a walk – the waterfalls glimmered in the distance.  Okay maybe they didn’t glimmer, but they did look tantalizing – white ribbons against the cliffs; they just had to be water rushing down the cliff faces.  There were lots of trickles coming down the cliffs and the two real waterfalls – the one above and this one:

And a beach that is usually deserted had other people – clearly the word had spread and people had turned out to see these waterfalls created by swollen creeks.

This beach is a bit of a challenge to find, but well worth the visit (even without the spectacular waterfalls).  Check out the map for directions and check out flickr for more pictures.
