Visiting Peggy's Cove and Lunenburg

  We visited Peggy's Cove and Lunenburg today.  Peggy's Cove is a scenic former fishing village said to be the most photographed site in Nova Scotia and perhaps all of Canada; and the weather was great for our visit.  Here are some great photos taken at Peggy's Cove by Paul Vandemeulebroecke that give some sense of its scenic beauty.

   From Peggy's Cove, we continued on to historic Lunenburg, once a thriving ship-building and fish processing center and now designated as a World Heritage Site, where we had lunch in the Old Fish Factory now converted into a waterfront restaurant and museum.  We also said goodbye to Nova Scotia riders Peter Clarke and Greg Trefry who had been with us since soon after our arrival in Nova Scotia.

   We continued on northward across the peninsula to tonight's stop, the Digby Pines Resort, near the Digby-St John ferry which we'll board tomorrow morning.  Upon arrival at the hotel I received an urgent message from Ken Brandt that Raymond Plue had hit a patch of gravel on a curve near Bridgewater and had gone off the road.  His bike was badly damaged but fortunately Raymond had only some 'road rash' and bruises.  Later I talked to Raymond by phone and he told me he was planning to return to Halifax and fly home since his motorcycle could not be repaired in time to finish the tour and ride back to Missouri.  Fortunately, his has been the only injury on the trip and there have been no mechanical problems with our motorcycles.

   Here is another of Paul's photos, this one taken at the Digby Pines Resort soon after our arrival.
