We left Halifax heading 190 miles to Yarmouth, NS with a short stop in Lunenburg for some lunch and some ‘quick’ sightseeing. The town, seeped in history and beautiful colonial architecture, was designated a UNESCO world heritage site in 1995. The historic core of the town is also a National Historic Site of Canada. The Lunenburg shipbuilding yards specialized in fishing schooners – the most famous built in 1921 – The Bluenose.
This Maritime trip is what Chuck is calling ‘the reader’s digest version’.
We’re definitely travelling faster through Quebec, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia than we’d like – and, sadly, we’re missing PEI and Newfoundland entirely.
We’re on a bit of a tight timeline as we’re scheduled to take the ferry from Yarmouth, NS to Portland, ME on Friday, September 9th. We’ll drive to Boston to spend a couple of days with Shannon, Gabe, Joseph and Celeste. Then we’ll drive to Poplar Bluff, MO to spend a couple of days with Kathryn, Jagger, Molly & Katie before ‘high-tailing’ it across the mid-west to Pueblo, CO for our 3rd annual Newmar International Rally on September 21st. Immediately following the Newmar Rally we’re on to Albuquerque, NM for the Hot Air Balloon Fiesta – my #1 item on my Butterfly List (…and, that’s another story).
