Bluenose II

{photos by Ian and me}

The Bluenose is probably the most famous ship in Canada. It's that ship on the dime. I had a chance to visit the Bluenose II when I was in Lunenburg and well... It looks like a ship. I don't really know what else to say! The thought of buying a Bluenose souvenir crossed my mind except I figured I'll just refer to a Canadian dime instead.

The first Bluenose raced a lot and eventually sank. Then they built Bluenose II, which is the boat in these photos. That's the extent of my boating knowledge. To be honest the only other boats I can name off the top of my head right now is the Titanic, Santa Maria, Black Pearl, U.S.S. Constitution, Theodore the friendly tugboat, Flying Dutchman, and half of those are fictional.
