We had a nice breakfast with our friends Tony and Jenny. They live in Nova Scotia’s verdant Annapolis Valley. We bid them (and Joy) good-bye and headed south and east across Nova Scotia to Lunenburg.
Lunenburg is a lovely, lovely town, with a German heritage. Many of the old houses are now cozy B&Bs. We started looking for lunch and George pulled in to a parking lot that looked like it might be a restaurant. It turned out to be a brewery! He just has a 6th sense!!
The brewery is across the bay from Lunenburg’s waterfront
After a nice beer, we walked around the waterfront. We found a restaurant with an outside table overlooking the water. The restaurant has put up these glass partitions for Covid, and they are a nice way to give privacy and to cut down on the wind.
This restaurant, Salt, had been recommended by our Ontario friends. I had some delicious steamed mussels and George had a rich seafood chowder.
Then, we found a coffee shop – The Laughing Whale – to buy some coffee that our friend had also recommended.
The waterfront is busy with fishermen and tour boats
Then, on to our other friends’ house. They are a couple – Art and Marjorie – that we have known for many years. Marjorie and George worked together in Gainesville, Florida. Our friends now spend half the year here (pre-Covid). They have a lovely house overlooking the bay with the Atlantic in the distance.
We sat outside enjoying the sunset, a rainbow, conversation, and wine.
DINNER: Stuffed bell peppers, and a salad on the side.
