July 4, 2009: Watching whales

In_Lunenburg Today was our free day and we spent all the day in the town of Lunenburg. This town offers visitors many architectural delights: houses, businesses, churches and public buildings from the late 1700s and particularly early 1800s are still being used today. In 1992, the government of Canada designated "Old Town" Lunenburg as a National Historic District. In 1995, the World Heritage Committee, under the auspices of UNESCO, recognized Lunenburg's cultural and natural heritage by adding it to their World Heritage List. After having a look around the town, three mates and I lived one of the most exciting activity of this experience: watching whales. At 2.30 pm we got on board a ship to go Whales deep into Atlantic Ocean to watch whales. Watching so close these mammals is really incredible. Moreover, we could also see seals! I am checking right now my photos and I cannot believe yet. After our tour, all the team had dinner in a typical Canadian pub to conclude a very nice day.
