Georgetown, Prince Edward Island

Today we drove east to Georgetown to see the schooner "Bluenose II" which was in the small port there. This is a replica of a 1920s Nova Scotian racing schooner. At one hundred and sixty one feet long and with a main mast towering one hundred eighteen feet overhead it is a very impressive timber ship. I put a few more pictures here which show the vessel in a little more detail.

It was impressive wasn't it? Too bad we didn't get to go for a sail!

Whoo! An outing! My dad would have loved that vessel. I'm used to 'Bluenose' being a nickname (possibly term of abuse) for Rangers fans.
