Saving Lunenburg

I'm stealing a post from Gen X at 40 because it's important to me. To find out why, go read the original post here.

This is the very quaint and historic town of Lunenburg, Nova Scotia:

Lunenburg, Nova Scotia Posted by Hello

My parents, grandmother, and me visited back in May 2003 on our two-week tour of the Maritimes. While we only spent an afternoon in the town, it left an impression on me. The people in the visitor's centre were very friendly, our lunch was tasty, the shops were cute (where I picked up a calendar, coasters, shot glass, and other tourist-y items), and the vistas were beautiful. I told Matt we'd have to go there together some day. Let's hope whoever buys the Clearwater buildings has reasonable plans that fit the character of the town.

HEY!!! I thought I was the only person who was allowed to steal that photo.

Loonie-burg is a real gem. In 1993 or so there was an article on Halifax and the cool music scene there (aka Seattle East) and all the cool Halifax kids were half-honestly saying how Halifax was pretty cool but not full of itself. At then end one says "Halifax? Have you ever been to Lunenburg? Now that's cool."

We're on a mini-vaca in an area where they're experiencing forest fires (thanks asshole arsonist). It's an area that makes Clift...
