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.
It’s been 665 days 48 557 nautical miles and 28 countries since leaving their home port of Southampton. 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!
