Day 3: Bathurst, NB to Beresford, NB to Bouctouche, NB! (200km)
Got up and explored the beaches around Bathurst and Beresford for the morning, found a few treasures too!
Always eager to explore tide pools and what critters might be hiding in them!
We found a few of these painted rocks! They were so fun to find just by chance! We left them exactly where they were so the next explorers could enjoy the surprise too!
From Beresford, we drove down to Kouchibouguac National Park to look for hermit crabs on the beach!
The wind whipped plants around on the beach, making these neat patterns all over the place:
Here’s a moon snail – they’re really huge and beautiful. We saw them all along the beach. Their big footprint helped them stay grounded as the waves pushed them around.
It took us a couple of hours to get to the end of the beach to where we’ve seen hermit crabs in the past, so walking back, the sun was starting to set and it was stunningly beautiful!
Off to Bouctouche as we make our way towards Hopewell Rocks and Fundy National Park tomorrow!
