Nova Scotia

    My favorite 'port of call' in Nova Scotia was Lunenburg, which is a working fishing village and UNESCO World Heritage Site.  For pictures of Lunenburg, see Lunenburg.  This page contains some of my other images of Nova Scotia from August, 2003.  To get to Nova Scotia, we took the overnight ferry from Portland, Maine (the Scotia Prince, which, in many ways, is like a cruise ship), landing in Yarmouth.  From Yarmouth, we drove up the southeastern coastline, stopping in Lunenburg (2 nights), before heading on to Halifax (3 nights).  From Halifax, we essentially drove all day to reach Cape Breton Island and Cape Breton Highlands National Park ('CBHNP') in far northeastern Nova Scotia.
