Day 50-51 Louisbourg, Nova Scotia   Leave a comment

Time to leave Newfoundland. Driving to the ferry, it was quite foggy. The fog really amazes me.

Boarding the ferry was not as stressful as the first crossing as this is only a 3 hour ferry.

We didn’t have to worry about an overnight bag or loading the dogs in the kennel. It seemed that things were parked much tighter though. CHECK OUT HOW CLOSE!

The Newfoundland scenery is just beautiful. It’s definitely a different lifestyle. I don’t think I saw a McDonalds! Lots of Tim Horton’s though.

Touring the Louisbourg Fortress was interesting. Everyone in the fort was dressed and playing their part for the 1700s.

We were surprised to find a courtyard of animals. Russell had fun “talking” turkey.

The Playhouse in Louisbourg was built by Disney for a movie at the fortress. Once they were done, they donated the building to Louisbourg, they moved it into town and it is now a Playhouse. We went one night and listened to a local group. What talent they have!

I really enjoyed listening to the girl playing the “Cajon,” pictured above right. It’s a percussion instruction and I’ve never seen anything like it. It looks like an ordinary wooden box, but add some symbols inside, a microphone and VOILA! Check out my video clip.

I have to say, people in Canada are so honest. One of our guests went to a yard sale and lost her expensive bracelet that was just 10 days old. She wasn’t sure where she lost it, but she went back to the house, the owner remembered her & said his wife found the bracelet. ONLY IN CANADA!

We enjoyed Louisbourg very much. It’s a cute little town.
