Amethyst Cove

..we have been wanting to rockhound since we went on a trip a couple of years ago..so today we went to a place we were interested in finding..Amethyst Cove.

A steep 70 degree rope assisted desent leads to a rocky Beach..which after a 3km hike leads to Amethyst Cove..beware of the high Bay of Fundy tides and time your arrival on the beach for when the tide goes out…and save energy for the punishing ascent..the picture with me and the walking stick has the point where I forgot my walking stick so I got to go back and get it..punishing.

Not a bad haul all things considered..including a highly magnetic meteorite(ish) find..I think it is magnetite but still investigating.
