Next stop Lunenburg.

September 12th we continued on to Lunenburg, Nova Scotia. While we were here we took a cruise on the Bluenose II and visited Mahone Bay and Blue Rocks.  There is so much to see in Nova Scotia that you could literally spend a couple months or more.  We have tried to pick out the main highlights or "sights to see" and do those since we have limited time here.

Lunenburg is where the Bluenose II is docked now.  John and I and Steve and Sandy took a two hour cruise on the Bluenose II on the 14th.  The weather was beautiful and we enjoyed the scenery. 

Here we are getting ready to board.  

Steve enjoying the view.

This is the lighthouse at Battery Cove.  We passed it going out.

The next day we were off to Mahone Bay to sightsee.  It is a nice little town with shops and restaurants and a nice view.  We parked and walked both sides of the Main Street then had lunch at a place called "Oh My Cod".  Their specialty is, of course, sea food but they offer a variety of entrees.  The food and service were both great.

John and Steve both got burgers.   That is some burger. 

Our next place to sightsee was Blue Rocks.  Blue Rocks is known as one of the best kayaking spots on the South Shore of Nova Scotia.  It is a fishing village with blue slate rocks on the edge of the ocean which attracts many artists and photographers. 

The next day we ventured over to Chester to visit the shops and check the Fo'c'sle Tavern.  The Fo'c'sle is the oldest tavern in Nova Scotia dating back to 1764.

Steve checking out the art on the walls. 

The next morning it was time to head off to our next destination, Church Point.  We said our "see ya laters" to Steve and Sandy as they were heading in another direction.  We have enjoyed traveling with them and sharing a part of our Canada experience with them.  Hope to see them again down the road real soon. 

Ruby and Yoda came to say "see ya later".
This was our selfie.  It was very windy that morining. 

We arrived at Belle Baie Campground in Church Point, Nova Scotia on September 14th.   Our site is in the back right on the water.  We can actually watch the tides come and go. 

Our site. 

While here we have visited the Nova Scotia Firefighter's Museum in Yarmouth and the town of Digby.

The museum is well laid out with lots to see. 

Yesterday we drove over to Digby to look around.  

John saw this lighthouse on the way to Digby so we stopped to get pictures. 

By the time we arrived it was time to find some lunch. There are lots of options in Digby.  We chose Shoreline Restaurant.  

We both had the grilled scallop kabob.  It was yummy.....and the view
was very nice.

There was also a lighthouse right up the walkway from the restaurant. 

Of course I had to get a picture.  I just love lighthouses.

It has rained all day today so we stayed in.  We will be traveling tomorrow. 

Laugh everyday.  Happy trails.  Stay safe.
