|Looking over the Fundy Coast from Martin Head shows how many beaches could exist here.|
|The beaches are full of a variety of tidal life.|
Just about every time the FFP crosses a river it comes to the mouth of the Bay to do so. Each time, the hiker is rewarded with the sound of crashing waves on rocky beaches. Wolfe Brook and Telegraph Brook each have a steeply sloped, boulder covered beach, where wave watching is an awesome experience, especially on windy days. At high tide along these beaches you are hemmed in close to the shore and it is hard to find a spot where ocean spray can't find you, but during low tide, you can explore the rock faces and smooth boulders. Regardless of where the tide is on its cycle, both of these small, unconventional beaches offer something to see and explore. If your into collecting stones, skipping stones, or as one acquaintance of mine does, balancing them, these beaches (as most FFP beaches) are a stone lovers dream. If you like scrambling and playing on boulders these beaches are great during low tide as you can find crevices, caves, are passages that are fun to play around. I like all of this stuff but what I truly love is finding that low lying boulder that has the right slant and smoothness that I can comfortably lean back into it and use it as a chair to watch the waves crash in.

|Martin Head can be viewed from a variety of angles, none of which are bad.|
A beach similar to Martin Head would be Long Beach. As it's name implies this is a long beach. Small airplanes have been known to land here. There is history here as well, although not as obvious as Martin Head, it can be seen if you know where to look. At high tide this beach is a long ribbon along the shore where in places it is impassable while at low tide there is an unimaginably wide beach over 2km in length. The highlights here change after every storm as new drift wood floats in and old rocks are covered over. It is worth exploring over and over again.
|Seeley Beach seems to enhance everything, including fog banks. How cool is that?|
As I finish this entry up I think about other aspects of the FFP and I've decided that I'll add an entry of photos with captions at a later date. I hope that these entries have peaked your curiosity and you'll get out there and experience some of the locations I have wrote about on your own. Happy trails.
