A Visit to Lunenburg, Nova Scotia

The Lunenburg waterfront.

On the long weekend, we went to Lunenburg, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and before taking off again, I felt the urge to share. 🙂

Some of the colourful buildings.

Lexicon Books. A beautiful little independent book store, where we bought a novel for my daughter, a guide to bugs for me, and a book about tying knots for my husband.

Lunenburg Bound Books and Paper. A great used book store, where I found (and bought) Paul Murray's Skippy Dies and The Voyage of the Narwhal by Andrea Barrett.

    Gorgeous pictures! Ah, nothing like another book nerd on vacation and getting to enjoy book stores vicariously! Have fun and be safe! I will vacation vicariously through you! 🙂 I’ll be interested in your reactions to Skippy Dies.

      I love hearing about others’ book store adventures, too. 🙂
      And, I’ve been searching for Skippy Dies at used book stores for a couple of years now – finally!

    Wow. I had no idea this place even existed! You guys have all the pretty little towns in the Maritimes! I would really like to know what you think of Skippy Dies! That’s been on my list for a while. I don’t think I’ve ever actually seen it anywhere.
    Hope you have a great time the rest of August! Will miss you around these parts!

    Looks like you had a wonderful holiday, Naomi. Your photos reminded me — because I went to Lexicon Books a couple of weeks ago with a friend from my book group to hear Darren Greer read — that I haven’t written to tell you what our group thought of Just Beneath My Skin. And that’s because we had to postpone our meeting until the end of August. Hope you enjoy the rest of your summer!

    It looks gorgeous! So glad you found the Andrea Barrett novel. I hope you like it. Isn’t neat going to bookstores in different places?!
