|We had a relaxing, fun day in Lunenburg and returned for a carry-in dinner with our caravan. Afterward we played "Mexican Train" with some of them....Sandy
Took a short drive to the coastal town of Lunenburg. This is a working fishing port with a strong dose of history. There is a maritime museum with an entry price of $7 that was fantastic. The displays of cod fishing ships and equipment show the dangers of the trade. We also went aboard a retired trawler where an old salt gave us a personal tour. Everything is open and hands on in this museum. We had lunch at a 3 story restaurant by the bay and watched sail boats playing in the brisk breeze. This port is the home of the Bluenose II, a sailing schooner design made famous in races in the 1930's. The current ship is being reconstructed from the keel up. Back at the campground we were treated to a pot luck supper.
We are reminded of the potential problems of our mode of travel. One of our group has a broken landing jack but he is able to unhook with some help. Another fifth wheel parked next to up discovered he had a broken frame and can not go back on the road. The unit is most likely not repairable. How would that mess up your vacation. We are lucky to have a solid unit and have had no mishaps so far. It has been a great trip so far. Hope to get in some whale watching on our next stop. Bill
