When we got there, unfortunately, high tide was cresting. Now they also said that there wasn’t a full moon and the tide came in at 36 feet. This was actually good for our little visit. We would be able to walk along part of the beach.
From the Visitor Center, to the Hopewell Rocks, is about a 15 minute walk down a wide forested path. It was fairly early and only a few visitors were present. This was a good thing as the parking lot looked like it could hold hundreds of cars and buses.

It was time to make a decision, which we did and visited my oldest 2nd cousin, in Lincoln, Maine. It was a thirty mile detour, but cousin Mary was very happy to see us. She just turned 100 years old on March 6th of this year. We talked for a while and said our good-byes. Tonight we parked in a school parking lot in Lincoln, not wanting to bother cousin Mary.
Tomorrow the home stretch!
That is what we did and saw!
