Having just returned from Nova Scotia, I have barely shaken the white sand from my shoes, much less the haunting feelings evoked by visiting some of the most beautiful sea-scapes in the world. In the world. Certainly you think I over state this?
The Harbor at Lunenburg
And yet, Old Town Lunenburg has been named a UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization) Heritage Site of outstanding universal value. It is deemed- right up there with the Pyramids of Egypt and the Serengeti National Park of Africa- as a cultural value to the world.
The water front is home to the Bluenose, a ship of great fame.
The Spinnaker Inn has fabulous meals- I recommend the fish cakes served with a cranberry rhubarb sauce. To die for.
This is my friend John Kirk, the rascal responsible for getting me back to Nova Scotia. He is shy, so I will put his photo small, but note the fish above his head. These elegant beasties are on many of the street corners, and I photographed several of them for the future amusement of my daughter JJ.
Coffee? I love coffee, especially the bird friendly type.
All to come. Nova Scotia, a beautiful land where sky meets sea. Lobsters, laughter and a coast scraped clean by the glaciers. Peggy's Cove, Lunenburg, whales and Puffins, don't forget the Puffins. An improbable bird, to be sure.
