On our last trip to New Brunswick we went to see the Hopewell Rocks. We’d been wanting to go for awhile now, but it never happened. This time our daughter actually scheduled a time for us to go between bites of birthday cake (Yes, Miss Charlotte turned one year only recently) and trips to Princess Auto.
These beautiful rocks have been carved out by the Bay of Fundy millions of years ago. They’re also called the giant Flowerpot Rocks.
From a writerly point of view, there are so many inspiring places in nature. Aren’t there? Could you imagine yourself standing at the top of one of these Flowerpots looking down into the Bay? What is it about nature that inspires us the way man-made structures cannot? I’m not sure anyone has ever looked at a paved parking lot or a skyscraper and felt inspired.
Have you found a favourite place that inspires you? Is there some place in nature you’re looking forward to visiting, Niagara Falls, The Grand Canyon, The Pyramids?
