Playing in the Park
It was one glorious week in Fundy National Park where I camped at "headquarters" on a cul-de-sac that was quiet and accessible to every activity I had in mind. From my tent, I could hike, bike, go swim, and walk into the quaint little village of Alma.
I love this Park, and I am enamored by the Bay of Fundy! This is a Park that you can bring along just about anyone as there's golfing, fishing, paddling, playgrounds, on and off-road cycling, hiking galore, and yes, a solar heated, saltwater swimming pool.
My hot and sunny arrival day was the culmination of a music festival onsite so I caught one act. From there, I plotted and planned all that I could fit in within a week -- cycling, hiking, a little work, some poolside reading, a ranger program, and a walk about town. The trails were not only challenging but scenic, as every trail I chose had waterfalls, a brook or a view of the Bay. This view never gets old as the tidal changes ensure that it never looks the same.
Two weeks here would have been great, yet I moved on to cope with the trauma of the big birthday (up next)!

I can see why you would want to return to the Bay of Fundy area, it's beautiful.
