I went to Lunenburg today because I missed the Tall Ship Festival when it was in Halifax. See, if I had known that the Lunenburg portion was only going to have FIVE ships, I would have stayed home from my trip and went to Halifax. Yes, you read that right, there were only five. I can see five ships at the Halifax Harbour during the summer, and not for the festival, for regular everyday events. Everytime Nova Scotia hosts something like this, I miss it, and for me, this year was no exception. I mean, Lunenburg could handle more than five ships. It's the birthplace of the Bluenose, used to be big for building ships. So, why did it get such a small amount of boats! Then, I get to thinking, if Lunenburg got five, how many boats were there anyways? Ten? So, I check the official website, there were more than 10. There were actually a lot, so I am going to just have to enjoy the pictures on the website. Why? Because even if they had all been there, boats are not as impressive if they do not have their sails up. These boats were just docked. So, what did I learn? Next year they have it, I am going to Halifax.
In other news, I'M GOING TO SHERBROOKE VILLAGE! I am a huge history nut, especially Canadian history (if you have not noticed), so I always go to all the historical places when I get the chance. Well, Sherbrooke Village has never been anywhere near any place I have ever gone, but my mother oddly enough is going near there this weekend for work, and I am going along. Strangely enough one of the places she has to go for work this weekend is the house of the man that runs the place, and he gave us free passes! I'm excited.
