Although sorry to say goodbye to Prince Edward Island we were already looking forward to our next adventure in Lunenburg. For the last two years The Tiare Taporo has been berthed in this quaint working fishing village. Captain Dan Moreland gave Johno and I a guided tour of the ship, and although at first glance we assumed there was a huge amount of work to still be accomplished, we were assured that once crew arrived all would be taken care of. Over the last couple of weeks, my grandsons, Tiavare and Royle have been working hard on getting the TT seaworthy. From dreams to reality, the ship has been overhauled, refitted and is now sailing down to the Cook Islands. We know it will be a huge success.
Anyone travelling throughout Nova Scotia should make a stop at Lunenburg. It is a fascinating village, with a long history of fishing, sailing, and bootlegging from the picturesque waterfront. We stayed at Boscawen Inn, a beautiful example of Queen Anne style of architecture. Dramatically set on a hillside in the middle of Old Town Lunenburg, we enjoyed magnificent views of the harbour.
