Lunenburg was the last destination on our road trip through the Maritimes. Located on Mahone Bay, it’s a vibrant port town that was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site for being the best surviving example of a planned British colonial settlement in North America. Instead of going on and on about this gem of a place, I’ve decided to let the pictures tell the story…
Whew! Well, that’s it. I finally got our whole East Coast Canadian adventure written down. It took a while, but it was a special trip that deserved some special attention. For 12 wonderfully warm days in July, we:
- Were happily charmed in Halifax,
- Shined bright like a lighthouse at Peggy’s Cove,
- Celebrated Canada Day at a natural wonder,
- Took a colourful journey through The Gentle Island,
- Savoured seafood, sea breezes and sunshine on a lobster boat,
- Became captivated by Cape Breton,
- Watched extreme tides in the Bay of Fundy,
- Got uncorked in the valley, and
- Feasted on colour in lovely Lunenburg.
This was one amazing Canadian experience that has created memories to cherish for a lifetime.
Thanks for stopping by. If you have questions about some of the places we visited in the Maritimes, please send a comment or two my way.
