Heading to Nova Scotia? Be sure to visit Lunenburg's historic waterfront. You will admire the courage of men and boys who went to sea in the wild Atlantic to make a living even if they were seasick every day. Times were tough, but the men and boys got tougher. The Bluenose was built here to such perfection and the local men could handle the ship so well that they could outrun fancy racing ships year after year in The America's Cup. Look at a dory on the dock, and you will not believe the hole deliberately drilled for drainage! A plug on the underside had a rope to grab if an Atlantic wave flipped the sailor and his catch! Rum Runners' history, fishing gear, whaling exhibits, an aquarium, model ships inside, and real ones moored at the dock, will interest everyone. There is restaurant that overlooks the dock, and the daily special was fresh and tasty, so put extra money in the parking meter before you go in so that you can sample local fare at your leisure. Support the locals by visiting this picturesque locale before the " real Nova Scotia" disappears!!!!
