And that was that. There was an ending, of sorts, but there’s a whole lot that’s still hanging out there, needing to be wrapped up.

The other feature of this park is the observatory at the top of the Penobscot Narrows Bridge. It does cost more than the standard park entrance fee, but if it's a nice day, it's worth the extra price.
This is not a waterfall - it's feature of the tides in this part of the bay, with all the rocks and crannies there. We saw two seals when we first arrived, and then a succession of ocean ducks seemed to be body surfing the worst of the rapids. It was a hoot to watch, and we were the only people there.

It's an interesting glacial feature (you can read more about that here) that ended as a mostly red-colored pebble beach. (It's actually rhyolite, and not jasper, but who's keeping track?) The scale is incredible - that's the BF in the top photo, and he's not a small guy.
Anyway, Roque Bluffs has both an ocean beach,and a pond to swim in, which just may make it the perfect beach park.
