Where : New Brunswick, Cape Enrage Interpretive Centre
Suggested Timeline : 90-120 minutes
June 27 – 2018 – Day 3
Day three started around the Fundy National Park, however after a few quick stops, we decided to go visit Alma Village. There is a small, but beautiful beach with a walking path. We bought some sandwiches in a small local supermarket and had an ice cream for desert.
After this small lunch break, we drove to Cape Enrage Interpretive Centre. It wasn't on our list, but the signs of the lighthouse on the highway got us curious. It would appear that listening to our intuition was totally worth it, because this was an amazing discovery!
Tickets = $12 CAD for both
Funds = from Nilo, our “Piggy Bank”
What is there to do ?
Cape Enrage Interpretive Centre has an amazing views, a Lighthouse, the shoreline, a zip line and much more. We were fortunate with the weather, it was a gorgeous sunny day.
According to local information, the lighthouse is working since 1838 and the current light tower is over 140 years old.
Discovering Cape Enrage Lighthouse
Cape Enrage has a restaurant (which we didn’t try) but it looks nice from the outside. There are also many adventure activities such as, zip line and rappelling. It looked really fun, perfectly located with a great view. If interested, check out their website for fees and additional information. https://www.capeenrage.ca/en/
YOU ABSOLUTELY MUST go downstairs ! It is not necessarily easily accessible by all, however it's very beautiful to explore the shoreline. If you can, head to the edge of the cliff and take the stairs leading all the way to the 'beach'. We estimate that we spent almost one hour exploring the gorgeous beach and cliffs. It's a great place to relax, reconnect, take pictures and meditate.
This said, we spent our afternoon at Cape Enrage and we drove back to Moncton taking a scenery road that take little more time but it’s totally worth to do it.
So, why is it called Cape Enrage ... ?
We had to ask the question ! The answer was simple, even on the calmest of days it's super windy. I almost lost my hat... so make sure to hold on to your belongings !!
Catch you next week !
