    Nice pics... but only little information! I didn't enjoy Lunenburg that much because I had a terrible headache that day.

    Quite a significant town. The Academy is certainly an impressive building. I love the harbour and the boat tour sounds great.

    Looks like a town that has plenty of things to do. Nice narrative on the town.
