We slept in a little, enjoying our luxurious room and then all four of us headed to the main house for breakfast. Richard was replaced by Alan who showed us around the house a little bit, sharing some of its history. It had been built in 1897, but left unoccupied for 10 years in the 80’s before Harry and David purchased it as an inn.
Kaitlyn was allowed to gently touch the silk walls and then had all the adults guessing where the giant seashell might have come from.
We enjoyed our breakfast and then checked out of the inn. Mom and dad will have to come back one day for a longer stay.
Kaitlyn explores the seaweed at low tide.
We set off for Alma and the Fundy Bay National Park. Mom had made this reservation at the last minute, deciding that she wanted to stay close enough to be able to visit the park near low tide. The little motel was our least impressive accommodation of the trip (especially compared to the night before) but surprisingly dad said that he slept the best that night (I guess he is having some nightmares about the prices of our stops (*laugh*).
We arrived at an excellent time – just at low tide – and enjoyed exploring the ocean floor. Seashells, seaweed and the beach caves. Dad even found a clam for us to look at and we all tried not to crunch to many snails underfoot.
We had supper at a tiny little restaurant where dad tackled his first lobster. It was tasty but a lot of work. It reminded us of the Koffee Korner in Hepburn.
