Natal Day in Nova Scotia

Monday, August 1st

We spent an uneventful night at the wharf in Clark’s Harbor after watching another great sunset from our deck.

We were a little surprised by the activity on the wharves late into Sunday night. It turns out the first Monday in August is Natal Day in Nova Scotia, so for a lot of folks it was a long weekend.

One of the interesting things along this trip has been the way the lobster traps in each area are a little different. From the bowed wooden traps in George’s Bay to these wire traps held together with pot warp.

Along the way, we passed Pubnico Point, site of a FPL/NextEra wind farm:

After just 36 miles with light winds, calm seas and no fog, we arrived in Yarmouth at Killam’s Marina, where we’re tied up next to the Hōkūleʻa, a performance-accurate full-scale replica of a waʻa kaulua, a Polynesian double-hulled voyaging canoe.

  1. Looks like I inadvertently wished you bag luck. My apologies. But at least you all got across the bay before things went haywire.

    1. Yes, we were fortunate to make it to a port in Maine before having this problem!
