Lunenburg, Nova Scotia


On Tuesday, we drove across NS from Halifax to Annapolis Royal, and it RAINED – the sort of rain we’d left home to avoid! We had decided to detour via Lunenburg, and also stopped in Mahone Bay, which is where the rain caught up with us, absolutely bouncing off the pavements. Fortunately, there were plenty of little coffee shops to choose from and we found somewhere to shelter.

Lunenburg is a pretty, colourful fishing town (see above) which has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage site. Tourism is therefore more important than fishing these days, and finding a place to park was tricky. Tables at lunchtime were at a premium too, but I’m not sure if this was despite the weather or because of it – be prepared anyway to do a bit of hunting around. We had originally intended to spend a night or two here but were quite glad we had changed our plans for somewhere quieter.

As before, there are a few more pictures on Pinterest.
