Day #178 – Lovely Lunenburg, Nova Scotia

LOCATION:  Lunenburg, Nova Scotia
CAMPGROUND:  Staying with friends at their bayfront house
WEATHER:  A bit windy, but very nice.  High 68
DISTANCE DRIVEN:  1 hour

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.
