Atlantic Tour Tidbits – Part VII: Lunenburg County, Nova Scotia

While travelling in Nova Scotia’s Lunenburg County on our recent trip to the Canadian maritime provinces, my husband and I came across some interesting and notable sights.
The area is scattered with vintage houses, some converted into bed and breakfasts, like the one above, for the comfort of visitors to the area.

Many residents displayed items more suited to the sea than the soil.

And a rock, painted in a spirit of fun, or is it sarcasm?

The Lunenburg power poles were adorned with fish and ships.

This boardwalk provided a good vantage point for photographing the ocean.
Sadly, it was a dull, rainy morning, and the bad weather cut short our time in Lunenburg County. We must come back here someday to see more of the area.
