We spent a whirlwind 3 days being tourists on the south shore.
First up we went to Lunenburg. Lunenburg is a Unesco Heritage Site.
Lunenburg is full of beautfiully painted buildings. This first photo is from the town's website, the rest are my own. Click on the aerial photo to go to the Lunenburg site.
We saw the Bluenose II, which is featured on our Canadian dime:
If you ever go to Lunenburg, Eat at Magnolia's Grill. I love the fishcakes there! and Joanne said that the Lobster Rolls were the best (or close to the best?) that she had ever eaten!
And a must-go to shop for handmade gifts is Dots and Loops. And The Makery if you like to make stuff. And Luvly if you like to wear stuff.
I also love The Fisheries Museum of the Atlanticin Lunenburg. I didn't go this year, as I have been many times in the past. Lunenburg also has a fabulous Folk art Festival every summer. Which I also didn't get to as I was alone at that point. And I don't drive.
You can see some of Joanne's fabulous photos here, on her blog.
