Ovens natural park

We were all happy to learn the cottage we had rented wasn’t too far from oven’s park.   I had always wanted to visit, but had never taken the chance.  And wow- so glad we went!  This place needs to be better promoted (if only I could get my hands on it!) – it is a gem and should be attracting millions of visitors per year.  As it was, we only saw 2 other people on the trail with us.

So what is it?   A walking trail along the coast that goes down into sea caves.   The caves have been created by the ocean breaking down the slate cliffs. It was also the site of a gold rush in the 19th century and you can still pan for gold (and find some!).

I’ll let the photos do the rest.

The path goes along the coast from one cave to the next. Cement stairs go down into 3 of them.

Why are my kids always in shorts/tshirt while I’m in a sweater/jeans?

Legend says this passage way goes all the way under nova scotia to the bay of fundy.
