Bluenose II … to the sea again !!

14 Jul

Some people might think that nuthin’ happens up here in Canada
– that we have no passion, no love, no lore …
But oh, they’d be so wrong.
So wrong !

“LUNENBURG, Nova Scotia — The Bluenose II will be available for public tours on Saturday after undergoing a major restoration.

Members of the public will be able to tour the ship after it sails into the harbour in Lunenburg and before it begins offering sailing harbour tours on July 19.

The vessel is a replica of the original Bluenose, the 1921 Grand Banks fishing schooner that won worldwide acclaim for its graceful lines and speed.”

And for being the fastest schooner in the world for 18 years!
