Our town – Lunenburg

27 11 2008

When we moved to Nova Scotia, we were sure that we wanted to live in the country again, as we had in Glenshee. However, after looking around the area for several months we decided to buy at Lunenburg. We are just outside the town, but close enough to walk in if we wish to or have to. Lunenburg is just about the right size of town for us, with only a population of 2,500. Yet, it has everything you would need in a small town. Unlike most American towns, it has pavements (sidewalks) and so you can walk to the Post Office, the Banks, the Library, the supermarket, small stores and the Pub. It also has a small indoor heated swimming pool, an outdoor pool, tennis courts, 9 hole golf course, curling rink, ice hockey rink, recreation centre, theatre and more. There are numerous art galleries and a very good series of concerts performed at the St John’s Church. We have tickets for the ‘Concert of 100 Candles’ next Saturday and I’m sure that will get us all into the Christmas mood.

Lunenburg is an interesting old town with its own history and unique architecture. It is an UNESCO World Heritage site and so attracts many tourists in the summer. We are looking forward to showing you all around next summer. I’ll include some links so that you can look at the old houses, fishing museum and Blue Nose. We watch the Blue Nose from our kitchen window as it takes tourists out for trips. That is a treat we are looking forward to next year – it must be really exciting.
