My cousin and uncle are out here right now for a visit. Today we did some touring and drove out to Peggy’s Cove,
I love this sign...
We stopped at the Swiss Air Memorial down the highway from Peggy's Cove. This is a shot looking back towards the lighthouse.
It’s a hauntingly beautiful memorial but very sad given what happened. Attributed to pilot error, the plane was having difficulties and so the pilot turned around towards the Halifax airport and miscalculated when to release to excess fuel...211 lives lost in 1998. Sorry no picture of it, but there is a tremendous photo set if you click ----> here.
We went through the Fisherman’s museum in Lunenburg, which is really well done and has a great staff who love to fill you in with little tidbits of information, like the contest you can enter in the restaurant on the second level. They’ll ship 25 one pound lobster’s anywhere so that you can host two dozen of your best buddies for a lobster fest’. Yum.
The Bluenose II,
My sister got a great shot of the Fisherman's Memorial and has graciously said I could post it here. She's good that way (and thanks sis, I really appreciate it!).
This was a fun day. Good visiting, good touring, good family. :o)
