I’m progressively getting my pics up from our week to Nova Scotia – eventually showing our day on the Bluenose schooner. These are a few images of Lunenburg – a beautiful little town.

Wikipedia says: “The historic town was designated a United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) World Heritage Site in 1995. This designation ensures protection for much of Lunenburg’s unique architecture and civic design, being the best example of planned British colonial settlement in Canada. The historic core of the town is also a National Historic Site of Canada.”
