Congratulations to granddaughter Kendyl on her HS graduation and member of the National Honor Society. Wishing all the best in your future. Continue to aspire and dream. So sorry we could be with you, but you are always in our thoughts.
Today we drove to Liverpool via Hwy 8 from Annapolis Royal and on to LeHave returning back via Hwy 10. It was such a nice drive and relaxing. Never tire of the small communities with their well maintained homes..each somewhat different..pride of ownership..beautiful gardens and flowers.
Liverpool located on the Eastern side of Nova Scotia south of Halifax was founded in 1759 and the port of privateers and home to world class shipbuilders. We stopped at the Fort Point Lighthouse and Battery defender of town and trade from privateers and agressors. The Lighthouse welcomed safe entry into the harbor for seafarers. Shipbuilding made Liverpool a wealthy community with some of the fastest ships built here. Liverpool was the departure point for ships laden with fish and lumber to Europe,West Indies and North America. Liverpool was the privateering capital of British NA. In 1813 a Battery and Blockhouse were built on this site to defend Liverpool from unscrupulous American Privateers. The Lighthouse is the Province's 3rd oldest surviving and is now a museum. You can walk the steep stairs to the top and blow the foghorn which I did.
