The last legs of the Nova Scotia adventure were to Shelburne and Lunenburg on the south shore. Luckily, most of what there is to see is near the wharf which made it easy for us to explore.
I found it interesting that Shelburne was settled after the American Revolution by people who wanted to remain loyal to the British Crown. Many of the homes in the old town date back to the late 1700’s and have been quite well maintained.
Another 3 hours up the coast to Lunenburg, and by now I’m very glad for the 24 knot speed of our boat . Much of this journey was off shore meaning there was not very much to see, so it made me happy that we got from place to place much quicker than if we were sailing or had a much slower power boat.
The best part of this stop was dinner at Fleur de Sel located in the heart of historic Lunenburg. The French trained chef uses local ingredients to create a tasty menu. The food was presented beautifully and just as good as it looked.
A week of travel on a boat is many things from foggy weather to choppy sea to impossible moorings to breathtaking sunrises and sunsets to meeting new and interesting people. Though all of it is part of the adventure, I have to confess this was not my favorite trip. We covered a lot of miles not to have seen more than we did. To top it all off, we had a little mechanical difficulty at the end of the trip that made docking the boat more than a little challenging. Oh well, it’s the doing that counts and makes life continually interesting.
