Chester, Mahone Bay and Lunenburg
So far, Nova Scotia is my favourite — beautiful old towns on the ocean.
We’re staying at Graves Island Provincial Park and our campsite is surrounded by sea.
Graves Island is in Chester, a picturesque little village with cafes that serve good coffee. Also, there is the Lido saltwater swimming pool that is FREE.
And on Tuesdays, they have concerts in the park, featuring the music of the Maritimes.
We passed through Mahone Bay, another beautiful though more touristy little town.
Then, on to Lunenburg, historic fishing village and home of the Bluenose. We went to the Fisheries Museum of the Atlantic.
And, learned about the Bluenose, the schooner featured on Canada’s dime. Unfortunately, it is in Halifax at the moment. Hopefully, we’ll see it today.
This is it’s original wheel cover.
And, thanks to my dad, here is some info. about the Bluenose II.
