Ship's Log

Friday, 13 October, 2023Noon Position: 44 22.5N 064 18.6WLog (nm): 658.1Weather: rainingDescription of location: Lunenburg (a sick little town)

Today we went to a museum! (The Fisheries Museum of the Atlantic).  It was a little dreary outside but we had fun and it fit the vibe of the small fishing town of Lunenburg. We learned about fishing history, scallops and some crusty musty old wooden boats but they were cool. We also deep dived into the cod industry and how people lived while at sea. After the museum, we decided to do some laundry and we took way too long and it made me reflect on how I wanted maple syrup cuz we in Canada! While we waited on our clothes I got a pint of cookie dough ice cream to munch on that I shared with Madi. When laundry was finally done we took a stroll back to town to drop off our laundry.

Then we decided to go get some food when we stumbled upon the fish shack where only the day before I got a big plate of fish and chips, where it  was devoured in seconds. But since it was the hottest place around, we decided to get a delicious last taste of America with a nice fat juicy bacon cheeseburger which was gone in exactly 0.345367 seconds. Then it hit me that I absolutely NEEDED a dose of maple syrup cuz we in Canada! I scoured the streets only to turn up empty handed which still breaks my heart and will be for the rest of my life.  Otherwise, it was a fantastic day in the midst of Nova Scotia, Canada!
