Lunenburg Welcomes Us

Watch C: Marley, Jack, Tanner, Terrick, Liz

Good Morning, today we raised our anchor at 0843 hours and motored to Lunenburg where it started raining. We had eggs and tortillas for breakfast, to celebrate Christmas in July; there was delicious red and green peppers in the eggs. After our chores we ate lunch consisting of grilled cheese and yummy tomato soup (thanks Nick). After we docked we went to an amazing museum, the Fisheries of the Atlantic. While at the museum we watched a documentary called The Captain & the Queen, a story about Angus J. Walters captain of the Bluenose. We watched his life story and learned about the uses of schooners in Nova Scotia. We toured another ship called the Theresa E Connor, another Schooner similar to the Roseway. We stopped for showers and then headed back to the museum where they held a crew party. There was live entertainment and surprisingly a good dinner. Then we got free bags and ice cream passes. We are looking forward to a surprise tomorrow.

Stay tuned
