The Lord Nelson

One of the advantages of living close to the sea is that there is a lot of interesting boats that sail in to local ports especially in the summer.

This week the tall ship, The Lord Nelson sailed in to the Port of Lunenburg and has been docked just outside the Fisheries Museum and Old Fish Factory restaurant where our youngest son works.

The STS Lord Nelson is only one of two vessels which have been designed and purpose built to allow people of all physical abilities to sail side by side on equal terms in this sailing program.

We went to Lunenburg for ice cream to one of David’s favourite little cafes and stopped to take a pic of the ship. It’s hard to get close without going through the museum and paying a cover charge but from afar it’s a pretty impressive ship. James was able to get a better pic from a different vantage point. I guess it all depends on who you know!

Adventure For Two

I am from Bridgewater, Nova Scotia, Canada and I'm back from traveling with my husband on an expat assignment to foreign lands. 2011-2012 we were in Shenyang, China. Spring 2012- Spring 2013 we were in Resende,RJ Brazil then back to Shenyang, China in July 2013 until the end of July 2014. Expat life WAS amazing! Adventure abounds no matter where we travel to. We really enjoyed the amazing opportunity to live and experience culture and tradition in these places. BUT now we are finished and adjusting to life in our small town in Canada. Our days of travel and adventure are not over.
