We arrived at Hopewell Rocks at high tide and this is a good thing because every other time we have been here the tide has been out.

The evening was with a flashlight and many steps down to the ocean floor. We then made supper of the red pepper soup i brought along, and a few games of backgammon and I was ready to turn in for the night.

The next morning was a picture perfect morning

The ocean floor has been dug out by  the rushing water

No wonder this is called natures flower pots. Looking closely you can see a bear standing on his hind legs.

Can you see his head better now?

Everywhere I looked the rocks reminded me. These look like elephant feet.

What about the face at the bottom of this rock, do you see it?

And this one, never mind.

We meet two lovely ladies who were on a mother daughter trip and the last time they had been to the rocks had been 40 years.  We stood and chatted a long time, long enough for these leaves to wither on the trees.

Moving along to Alma we are venturing to the park and come onto this driftwood gift shop with a  closed sign out front.  We know what a closed sign means to us so we go on up and ring the door bell.  Yup, they opened up their little shop and let us in and this is my next find.
