Fundy National Park– A couple of days exploring Fundy National Park is so good for the soul. We hiked, beachcombed, played at the playground, checked out a graveyard, and more. You can find some more details about Herring Cove Beach and Point Wolf Beach from our previous blogs.
We hiked the Caribou Plains trail, Dickson Falls, and Herring Cove Beach.
Here are just a few of the highlights and beauty that surrounded us as we explored nature as a family.
E &S Candies and Kites – If you have a sweet tooth, you need to visit E&S Candies and Kites. They make fresh, buttery fudge in several flavours and they are gluten and nut-free! We also picked up a great quality kite to enjoy on our travels.
Say Cheese Photography- We stopped in to chat with Darian Colbourne, the owner at Say Cheese Photography. You can get some pretty fun photos done there. There are costumes, props, and sets to choose from. So much fun!
We could not convince Clayton to do a photo, so we opted for an airbrushed tattoo, which he loved!
Explore The Beach At Low Tide – One evening we spent an hour or so just walking and enjoying the beach at low tide. Alma is on the Fundy coast and one of the best places to experience the World’s highest tides.
Holy Whale Brewing Co.– We stopped in to grab a few craft beers at Holy Whale Brewing. LOVE the about section on their Facebook, “Weird place. Weird people. Good beer. Good coffee.”
The Alma Boathouse – This restaurant has an outdoor patio area with a few tables as well as a very well laid out space indoors. The food was fabulous and we opted for seafood, we were in Alma after all!
Sapranos Pizza – we enjoyed a pizza and garlic fingers on our last day before heading home. They allow one person to enter to order, or you can call ahead. You then wait in your car and they call your name. We chose to eat outside under their tent with picnic tables. It is a great option for those travelling, especially if you have a dog with you.
The pizza was amazing, fresh, and flavourful. Just what we wanted in a pizza!
Kelly’s Bakeshop – If you are looking for a treat, this is the place! We tried their famous Sticky Buns and a few Whoopi pies. So good!!!
Fundy Take Out – The day we went into the park to hike and explore, we decided on take-out for lunch. We were told they had good Poutine, so that’s what we had. It was great, lots of cheese curds and gravy, yum!
Clayton opted for the Chicken Strips, as always!
Located within a 5-minute drive from the shops and restaurants of Alma, you will find peace and tranquillity off the main road and off the beaten path at Fundy Cabins.
With four cabins in an opening in the woods, you are surrounded by nature, have space to run, and play and you will not feel like you are on vacation with others. There is plenty of open fields, some trails, and beautiful views.
The new owners are working hard to update and add to the charm and atmosphere at Fundy Cabins. We stayed in the recently renovated Cabin #2. It is beautifully decorated, with 2 bedrooms, a full bathroom, a kitchen, and a large living area.
There is a lovely front porch to enjoy your morning coffee or watch your kids play in the open field.
A fire pit is available at each cabin for relaxing at the end of the day while enjoying a local beer or glass of wine, and making smores!
I am a fan of the little details, these are a few of the added touches at Fundy Cabins in cabin #2.
They will be updating all the cabins over time as well as adding more amenities, like a playground, laundry, and more.
So, if you are like us, and have gone to the region mainly for day trips, try planning a longer stay. There is plenty to see, do, and eat in Alma, NB!
Here’s another video recap of our Alma adventures in Summer 2020!
