Canada - Lunenberg, Nova Scotia

semi-overcast 25 °C

A scenic coastal road led us along Nova Scotia's east coast and into the towns of Mohone Bay and Lunenberg. Both are popular holiday spots and eclectic fishing towns which must transform to cosy villages during the winter. Lunenberg itself is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and the colourful houses and churches that date back to the late 1700s are still in use today.

We were lucky to stumble across the Lunenberg Folk Harbour Festival, catching some music in the sunshine. The Bluenose II was also docked in the port, modeled on the original Bluenose sailing ship - which was a Canadian icon in the early 1900's and has been on the Canadian dime since 1937!

We camped at a nearby campground and got some work done over the couple of days we spent in these gorgeous towns. We also had to navigate a rainy night of camping, and managed to string up a tarp to cover part of our campsite - the Canadians seem to be pro's at this!
