Lunenburg, Nova Scotia, Canada

Easy Go arrived in Lunenburg on June 6, 2009 after a 37 day passage from Port Antonio Jamaica. This beautiful and historic town is a UNESCO site and is very unique. There are a number of festivals over the summer months. We enjoyed the Folk Harbour Festival which is the longest running folk festival in Nova Scotia.
Easy Go has had her sails resewn by Kathy. Numerous improvements with more storage are also completed making life far more pleasant. The new yuloh (sculling oar) continues making our motorless mode of transportaion possible. Our cruising over the summer has been limited to one month around Mahone Bay in Nova Scotia. This area is very nice cruising ground with numerous island and bays to anchor in along with beautiful scenic and historic towns. The towns of Mahone Bay and Chester were particularly delightful.
There is still some great fall cruising to be done with the fall colours just beginning.
Plans are to winter in Lunenburg and continue along the Atlantic Canada coastline again next cruising season.
We will be adding numerous pictures, both historic and contemporary from our travels. The building of Easy Go will also be added for those interested in building their own Junk Rigged Dory.
