Yesterday I spent most of my day relaxing at my Airbnb which was nice and just what was needed to charge the batteries. Although I’m not one to sit around my host Jill took me kayaking on the lake in the afternoon so another tick off my list of things to do in Canada. Sorry I didn’t get photos as didn’t want to tempt fate and fall in and lose my camera. Things on the lake seen,was a turtle yes you get a lot round here and also the beaver den at the end of the lake. So that was great the lake water is very warm no bracing yourself when swimming.
Today I was going into Lunenburg despite the initial rain which then gave way to bright sunshine. Lunenburg is about 4 km from where I’m staying so I was kindly dropped off and then walked back.
It feels like a working port and not to many tourists about( I know I’m one of them) I try to blend in. The first thing you notice is how brightly painted the houses are which is cheerful in itself.
Just some of the different vibrant colours
I then went down to the harbour to see the Bluenose 11 working sail ship and as its owned by the people of Nova Scotia your allowed on board for a look around.
To think people use to go whaling in this size of boat amazing
Yes my lobster roll delicious sitting out side in the sunshine watching the people go passed.
An old jeep for sale which was in fantastic order.
Tonight Jill my host drove me down to Blue Rocks outside Lunenburg where there is pretty little coves it was stunning in the last of the days sun.
Looking over Lunenburg at the end of the day. So it was a lovely day in down town Lunenburg which is a must to visit if your out this way
