A day at Lunenburg

Today we drove to Lunenburg to see a typical Nova Scotia fishing village.  Of course, Lunenburg is anything but typical.  It is, in fact, the fishing village fixed up to represent all the other fishing villages.  But it is very charming and very beautiful.  The drive was spectacular as well.  The village itself is actually quite small.  The harbour appears to be very well protected.  While we were there eating lunch, the Blunose II weighed anchor and headed to sea.  The whole procedure was incredible to watch.  After clearing the dock, the ship motored out a bit, and then started to show some canvas.  Even idling, she looks like she is moving fast.  And a note on the lunch.  For four of us, it cost $75.00 dollars for lunch.  In the words of Randy "It's a bit spendy, dog". 

After luch we drove around the place - mostly to shield ourselves from the opressive heat and humidity - and came across several very beautful churches.  One was built in the 1700s, and burned in 2001 and completely rebuilt to the original design.

All in all a very wonderful day.
