Day 5 consisted of a wonderful visit to Lunenburg for shore leave before beginning the major leg of our journey to Iceland. Lunenburg is an historic port and Unesco World heritage site. It is a quaint picturesque town to the west of Halifax. It took approximately 9 hours to motor-sail from Halifax the day before and we arrived around 5pm in the evening ( it’s 1 and a half hours by bus). The town has some colourful characters with some even providing members of the crew with a bag of scallops for the entire crew to enjoy (much appreciated). In the evening we went out for our final meal as watches ashore before we aimed to meet the open sea. Sights to see include the Horse and Cart tours, a cacophony of churches, the Ironworks Distillery and of course, the tall ship docks themselves.
