Thursday Travels: The Rocks of Cape Enrage

Over time

As promised, I’ve brought you some rocks from Cape Enrage.  Since I’m on a mission to simplify my life, I did not bring home a ton of rocks from our vacation in a form other than photographic.  I already have little altars of rocks (shells, feathers, etc.) built pretty much everywhere around the house.  I’ve been limiting my penchant for collecting to photography.


The rocks at Cape Enrage are beautiful.  The patterns, the textures, and the colors are phenomenal.  I’m afraid my photos really don’t do them justice, but at least you’ll get an idea of the beauty to be found in the rocks.

Our sense of community and compassionate intelligence must be extended to all life forms, plants, animals, rocks, rivers, and human beings.  This is the story of our past and it will be the story of our future.

Another bed of rocks

A stone is ingrained with geological and historical memories.

Remains of a previous time

This is the point in the post where I veer off towards the Bogs and tell you about my walk today.  However, since this was originally a scheduled post, I’ll fill it in with something else.

All that remains

Or I could, I suppose, fill it with nothing much at all.


Just a few words in between the pictures, something to take up space.


I won’t do that.  Too much.  Besides, we’re almost finished.


Yep, that’s it for this week’s Thursday Travels.  Thank you for joining me on a trip back to New Brunswick.  It’s hard to believe it’s been almost two months since M and I went on our adventure north and east.  Time sure does fly when it’s summertime.

Wishing you a joyous day, a wonder-filled evening, and a peaceful night.  🙂

  1. Wishing you the same, Robin…
    Time is really flying past.

    Thank you, Robin! My father studied geology and was a rockhound, so I grew up loving and admiring rocks! These were a real treat! 🙂

  3. love the detail in your rock images! and that you named them. the comment by Andy Goldsworthy is right up my alley.

  4. mobius faith says:

    so many wonderful textures.

  5. Sallyann says:

    These are really wonderful. 🙂
    I went back to the beginning to try to choose a favourite then realised I loved them all and going back was just a subconcious excuse to look a second time … so I went back a third time and enjoyed them all over again. 😀
    Really really wonderful. Thanks.

    Love the rocks. I, too, have piles of them (along with feathers) all over the house. However, we don’t have many rocks in FL so I have to purchase them all. The feathers are free.

    I can agree the rocks are lovely BUT that web is spectacular!

  8. Robin says:

    Thank you so much everyone. I’m glad you enjoyed the rocks (and the spider web). 🙂

  9. Really rocks.( No words needed.) Just amazing

  10. Those last few rock pictures are really interesting, what a cool pattern on those! Can’t help but wonder if there are any heart-shaped rocks in those rock beds, although they look a little too rough and jagged (wouldn’t stop me from looking! 😉 )
    I’m jealous of that spider web…I’m always on the lookout for a perfect one like this one, but have yet to find one.

    • Robin says:

      I bet there were plenty of heart-shaped rocks there, Michaela. But there were so many to look at that it would be a bit like finding a needle in a haystack unless you happened to get lucky and spot one or two right away. 🙂

      We’ve had some great spider webs here lately. Misty, dewy mornings make them easy to spot.

    Hi Robin. I remember seeing the ‘fans’ when I was there last. Thank you for your tour of the formations. Jane

  12. CMSmith says:

    Fascinating. Did you process some of these photos?

    • Robin says:

      All of them are processed in some way, Christine. I process all of my photos in Photoshop, usually tweaking the contrast and sharpening them, then resizing them for the blog. That’s about it for these photos. 🙂

  13. […] week we looked at The Rocks of Cape Enrage.  I could show you more, but that would be going overboard.  Besides, it’s time to move on. […]
