The. Lord Nelson Hotel
Posted Sep 18, 2016
We entered the lobby and it looked how we had imagined from pictures, but more. We booked in and while we were waiting for our room to be finished, we looked at tours with Concierge Brian, who told us the best ones. So we booked. Room was ready, so we freshener up and came down to The Arms for some food.
Went on tours from Murphy's Harbour Hopper, half on land, half on sea tour. Lunenburg and Mahone, 2 fishery towns with great history and colourful buildings. Peggys Cove a lighthouse that is named after a lady called Peggy, can't remember exactly. Whale watching tour where we were lucky enough to see dolphins and hand feeding herring gull by hand. Took a walk from Pier 21 all the way to The Casino, checking all the sites along the way. Was going to do the hop on/ off bus, but due to no cruise ships being in, it was cancelled. So instead went to The Citadel Fort, a British working fort, where uniform is a Kilt, from The Celtic ancestry. Very well worth the visit, we stayed 3 - 4 hours looking around. Museums we saw were Maritime Museum of the Atlantic. Museum of Immigration and Fisheries Museum in Lunenburg.
