Brightly painted wooden buildings
Plump rose hips against red clapboards
The Bluenose was in port
But she cast off for a little tourist trip (at a cost of $45 per person). We stayed ashore.
The wharves with colourful buildings behind.
We went aboard this dory fishing boat, carrying 12 dories.
Below decks in the forward cabin where the dorymen slept and ate.
The fisherman's life was incredibly hard. We found out about it from this fellow, Captain Harold Moore, who had fished in a dory off a tender like this when he was a teenager.
This very old church burned to the ground in 1982 and was rebuilt within a few years.
A view across the water to Lunenburg. It reminded us a bit of Port Townsend on the Olympic Peninsula but is much, much older. An amazing place.
