Despite the weather (yes, it’s still raining) we had a pretty good day yesterday. We walked into Lunenburg, about 10 minutes from the campground, and went to the Bluenose II restoration.
Interesting stuff. The ship was originally built in 1963 and has undergone a few restorations already, but this one is virtually rebuilding the entire hull. It will essentially be a brand new boat when it is launched in 2012, with all of the old furnishings and fixtures reinstalled.

This boating store sells lifejackets for dogs! Nice!
Then we went to the
, and because they don’t officially open until May 16, they had complimentary admission yesterday. That suited us just fine because we believe that all public museums should be free anyhow. It was an interesting museum, and a lot of it related to the number of shipwrecks that happened around Fisheries Museum Sable Island off the coast of in the 1920’s. Nova Scotia
Exploring Lunenburg Harbor
But unfortunately, we’re going to cut this trip short. The rainy cloudy overcast weather has our batteries low, and the forecast isn’t looking any better. So we’re going to head back to Kentville and then to couchsurfers Angela and Glenn where we’ll be parked up with electricity for the next three weeks or so. Ruth leaves for
next week, so Whiskey and I will be on our own for two of those weeks. Ottawa
On a happier note, it’s our anniversary today…27 years married! And 3 ½ of them living in a 240 sq ft motorhome!
