Three Sisters Sea Kayaking Day Tour
Let me take you kayaking on the world's biggest tides, the Bay of Fundy. We will paddle in the spectacularly scenic and remote Cliffs of Fundy UNESCO Geopark, where North America once separated from Africa, and the evidence is still visible in the cliffs today: Lava flows, fossils, colourful rock formations steeped in indigenous storytelling, and arches to paddle through. A highlight of the tour are the Three Sisters rock spires, which we will kayak through while I take photographic memories to take home. We will stop at a remote beach that used to be one of the busiest shipyards along the Fundy shore during the age of sail. Today, it is a heaven of serenity, where we might find remnants of the past in an old horseshoe or parts of the historic wharf once the tide recedes. Here, we might see a bald eagle fly over, hear kingfishers chatter and see curious seals poke their heads out of the Bay. We settle down on driftwood for a home-made meal fresh from my organic garden. Upon paddling back, the tide will be well into the ebb, so areas where we previously paddled through are now sitting high and dry - an incredible sight. The paddling time both ways is about 1.5 hrs, with an hour for the picnic. I will provide all the gear needed, food, photos and instructions on how to paddle and steer the kayaks, and am a certified kayaking guide.
Meet a Miniature Donkey and make a friend for life
Miniature Donkey Experience Guests interact with 4 mini donkeys (minis are under 36"): Bobby, Sabrina, Lolita & Coal Dusty. While BRUSHING, we will talk about donkeys as a species: how they differ from horses; their natural environment and how this impacts care; hoof-care; supplements; and the personalities and history of each of our very loving donkeys. (In the colder season, this may involve removing their blankets or, if very cold, brushing the parts of our donks that are not blanketed.) We will WALK the donkeys in a manner tailored to our group, in consultation with guests. We may opt to take them for a walk along our private country road and into the forest or around the paddock. We live on the banks of a protected lake; the area surrounding the lake is known for its special plants and many trees. We will talk about the natural environment and the agricultural uses. Although all donkeys have distinct personalities, generally they are docile and safe to walk. Ours love a walk! Upon returning to the paddock, guests may FEED the donkeys a small low-cal* snack provided by us. (*donkeys are very prone to weight gain; there are certain strict "do's and don'ts" when it comes to donkeys' diets). Guests MAY NOT feed donkeys anything without permission. Unlimited opportunity for PHOTOS during hour (this may impact walking time). For safety, dogs MUST be controlled.
