Thanks Maggie.

It was nice to get this close to the Bluenose again.  In 1980 the Halifax Center of the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada hosted the Society's annual General Assembly and we chartered Bluenose II for an evening sail off Chebucto Head.  Full sail and no engine, had the visitors thrilled as she heeled over significantly.  They rebuilt the ship from the keel up under the watchful lens of a NS Web Cam camera in a temporary building located next to the shed/building where the Bounty was built (which was where the original Bluenose II was built in 1963).  My wife and I visited Lunenburg, about 45 minutes from home, a few times over the course of the re-build.  Lunenburg, and Peggy's Cove are two tourist traps worth a visit if Nova Scotia.  An easy bike of 230 kms from my home (Bedford) and back. Below are a couple of pictures with the rebuild quite far along.

Mike

That sure doesn't look like the Bluenose that I took from Bar Harbor to Nova Scotia in the late seventies. That was a huge passenger and ferry ship. IIRC, it quit running in the early 80s.

Bivens Chapel historic commision. Before 1836


A bit farther down the road, a new city hall build after a recent flood destroyed the old one.
Russian influence in the community:

If you're wondering about the building on the right of the Star (that's what I named her),
They let Dollar General build a store right in front of city hall...yes it is on the same lot. What was the front lawn. $$$ talks.

My apologies...I'll resize me photos in the future....

I used to forums auto adjusting photos. I shrunk them and edit the links. If they are still a problem, let me know so I can correct it in future posts.
Still learning the quirks and differences between different forums.....
