... stay & we particularly liked being able to walk down into the town rather than jump in the car all the time! We took advantage of the good weather & had some delicious seafood meals out, which we rarely do so it was a real treat! We were serenaded by church bells on Sunday morning - you dont hear that very often!
We took a drive out to Blue Rocks - ...
... Canada - who have introduced themselves to us because Monica is flying a German flag out of the back window of our car in support of their World Cup soccer team. No matter where we travel in the world - Asia, South America and now the Maritimes - it always seems that Germans rank as the number one group of travelers. Not only in number but in quality as well. Thank goodness they beat Argentina as I do not think Monica likes losing all that much.
... The grey weather of Nova Scotia normally gets me down especially at this time of year but not today. Having been in such dry and sunny weather for so long, I am actually enjoying this change and really appreciating the beauty of this landscape and weather.

... from the rocks into full daylight and free space again I found myself doing a little lap of celebration and a jig, only to turn around and find that I wasn't alone in doing so, Ines and myself were doing a lap of honour!

From now on we call this "Whale watching"
A few miles down the road we stopped at the memorial for flight Swiss Air 111 that ended in the ocean in 1998 killing more than 250 passengers. Its a sad but dignified place.
Lunenburg itself has lots of fishing industry. One restaurant offers 50% on appetizers between 4 and 5.30 P.M. Glad we made it there in time.
