A Typical Morning in Lunenburg

16 08 2013

Lunenburg has a population of just over 2,000, but in the summer months it fills up with visitors.

We enjoy a walk around the town in the morning, before the tourists are on the streets.

This is Monday morning, looking down to the Railway Wharf.

And across to the Bluenose Golf Course.

The nearest boat does harbour tours, the Eastern Points goes  whale watching and the Eastern Star, sailing trips.
