    If you love the life of the sea, the romance & history of earning a living from the sea, fishing boats and boat-building, you can do little better than to visit Nova Scotia and Lunenburg.  Lunenburg is a working fishing village and a UNESCO World Heritage Site that has been preserved & restored and is celebrating its 250th anniversary this year.  This town of 2000 people must have more than a score of B&B's and other such lodgings, many in finely restored & furnished old homes . . . very atmospheric.  These pictures were taken August, 2003:
