Today we saw one of the most prominent lighthouses in Canada – Cape Forchu. It is beautifully landscaped and sits on a high hill of tons of granite rocks. The lighthouse itself is fairly new – built in 1962 in an “apple core” design, replacing the original 1839 lighthouse.
Later we toured Yarmouth, once Canada’s major shipbuilding centers. There are over 200 Victorian sea captains’ and merchants’ homes in the town and I think we got pictures of most of them. We took a walking tour – about one mile – looking at the refinished homes and historic buildings.
Had lunch at a seafood brewery and restaurant on the harbor. Sandy, Diana, and I had a taste of the local brew – very tasty!
