sail in to Lunenburg, Nova Scotia, in the early morning of July 18, 2015.
His adventure kicks off at sea aboard the historic Bluenose II
schooner, the symbol of which appears on all Nova Scotian number plates.
There was an open invitation to swap stories with old sea salts aboard the permanently moored trawlers, but I chose instead to take a look at the Bluenose II
, Canada's most famous schooner, depicted on the country's ten cent coin.
Through the summer our activities have centered in Prescott where costumed members were among those greeting the Bluenose II
on both its upstream and downstream stops in Town.
These include wood from Nova Scotia's Bluenose II
schooner, copper from the Library of Parliament roof, a piece of four-billion-year-old Acasta gneiss rock from Great Bear Lake, and more.
