First stop, Hopewell rocks, home to these amazing flowerpot rock formations created by the powerful tidal effect. Unfortunately I arrived at high tide so couldn't see a lot but 6 hours later at low tide you can see this geology phenomenon. Even if you not an enthusiastic geologist it is still worth visiting the Bay of Fundy coastline and admire the largest tidal range in the world
The following day I did a short hike inside Fundy national park before continuing my journey to the US-Canadian border. I stopped at the border town of St. Stephens for a late lunch as I attempted to spend my spare Canadian dollars at a KFC restaurant. This however turned out to be the most entertaining fast food meal I have ever had. In a deserted restaurant I got talking to Jessie (the cashier), discovered she had applied to sing on Canadian Pop Idol and before you know it she was singing Sheryl Crow songs to me.
She was good, but I don't think she progress further than a very good karaoke singer, but I would love to be proved wrong.
From there I passed back into the USA and endured the usual 20 questions at the US border before continue the long drive through Maine to New Hampshire and the White Mountain National Park.
