I had heard that a schooner was being launched this past Sunday, and figuring that they would launch on the high tide, I headed over to see if I could photograph the launch. Unfortunately, I was too late, but there were still some picturesque scenes for me to capture.
|David Westergard continues to build schooners in the historic Smith & Rhuland shed on the Lunenburg waterfront.|
|The launching ways lead into the water from the old Smith & Rhuland shed.|
|A more modern version of the traditional fishing dory.|
|The schooner whose launch I missed on Sunday, already tied up at a nearby wharf.|
|Not all the boats in Lunenburg were sitting alongside or on the shore - the tour boat in the background was taking passengers around the harbour.|
|It started out overcast, but the sky cleared and provided some beautiful light on the waterfront.|
