August 29, 2013 Day 99  South Shore of Nova Scotia
Shelburne Harbour Yacht Club
Shelburne, Nova Scotia, Canada

Today was a day to work and sightsee!  There were several chores to complete and a town to visit.  After several loads of laundry (Joyce) and fixing a pump and monitoring it (Bill) we finally took a break.

Charlotte Lane Cafe
Colorful simple homes on Charlotte Lane
Bill chose to stay on the boat and rest while Joyce went to lunch with Ron, Lisa, Richard and Shannon at the award winning Charlotte Lane Café.  We were not disappointed – the food was excellent!  Then we walked around the small streets and went into several shops.  The town is very quaint and has many of the colorful houses that Lunenburg has, only a different style architecture.  Many of the homes date back to the 1780’s when the town was founded. Shelburne like others, was a shipbuilding community. In 1994 the move, A:The Scarlet Letter was filmed here.

Cranky & Ectsatic are next to each other on the dock! We wonder
how that works for them!
Richard and Shannon feeling very small!
There was much more to see but it was very late in the afternoon and unfortunately we did not have time to visit the museums. (We could put Shelburne on the “return list” too!)

We had a quick dinner on board and made preparations for our trip tomorrow with Outbound and Esmeralda. We will head to Yarmouth which is a 70 mile trip – a very long day!
