Saturday was overcast, but not raining, so Pea and I tagged along with Hubby as he went to do some work in Lunenburg, a beautiful port town, a Unesco Heritage site, just over an hour from home. The town was hosting a Wooden Boat Reunion, that I thought Pea and I could enjoy. It turns out, boats don't hold our interest to a great degree :) but we did enjoy the parade of sails and sending off a message in a bottle (actually, a ship captain will be throwing the bottles further out to sea). We dutifully made our way to the pier to watch the sail boat race, and just when we thought the boats were lining up to begin, everyone dispersed and left. And the boats remained still. It turns out we (somewhat) watched the boats reach the finish line, but didn't realize it at the time. We enjoyed visiting art galleries, with some colorful folk art, and sipping coffee overlooking the harbour with a new acquaintance. Our favorite part, as always, was the historic homes that line the streets, and pointing out all the fine details.
