The colorful Victorian houses, are homes to art galleries, gift stores, restaurants and businesses of all kinds.
|Restaurants along the wharf on Bluenose Drive|
|The waterfront is vibrant with ships coming and going.|
The wharf is lined with these beautiful red buildings.
A waterfront museum and restaurant.
|Lunenburg is home to the Bluenose ll., |
an exact replica of the Bluenose: Queen of the Atlantic.
The original Bluenose was so grand she has adorned the Canadian dime for nearly 80 years.
|We had hoped for a sail on this ship, but without knowing when we would get here it was impossible to book in advance |
and she is booked solid until end of August.
We had even hoped for maybe a last minute no-show, but that didn't happen.
|All Aboard! We sailed on the Eastern Star.|
As you can see, a much smaller sailing vessel.
There were 9 of us and it was a 'hands on' sail.
So anyone could help with the sails or steering.We had a great time and a great sail.... thank you to our Skipper Merrill and his crew member Phil.

A nice ship, lots of room to move about. Of course if there were 30 on board, as there sometimes is, it would a lot more crowded!
