What I did on my summer vacation
We have been on holiday in Nova Scotia. Since this was B's first trip to the Maritimes, we visited some of of the usual sites on the first few days.
Like historical Lunenburg,a UNESCO world heritage site:
The schooner Bluenose was in port (she graces the front of our dimes too.):
We stopped to photograph the famous three churches of Mahone Bay.
We paid our respects at the memorial to the passengers of SwissAir flight 111. We did not know until afterward we were there on the ninth anniversary of the tragedy.
The windswept rocks near Peggy's Cove made for several hours of hiking and exploring:
Tiny Blue Rocks harbour was gorgeous:
We explored the lovely village of Chester on foot:
Which of course earned us a Kieth's Pale Ale and a Moosehead Lager on the deck of the Rope Loft pub.
Where we plotted our Nova Scotia adventures ahead. Which would take us on a ferry ride and an encounter with a ghost. Stay tuned.
