It had been many years since I had been in Lunenburg. It has changed so much. It was a great afternoon to stroll along the Harbour front, and to finally go aboard the Bluenose 11

Well worth the stop to see the beautifully restored homes in this quaint seaside village. Walking is easy and enjoyable as you watch the fishing boats in the harbor. Relax as you shop and enjoy the restaurants.

Very picturesque with some cute shops and restaurants. Bring some change for parking or pay $20 for the day by the water. Most of the parking is 2 hour parking at meters.
