Museum Day

Here we are inside the Knaut-Rhuland House with the aforementioned model of the town as well as a peek of the interior. It's a great place to spend the morning, and next we head for the Fisheriess Museum of the Atlantic, located partially in the red buildings on the waterfront.
The museum features working craftsmen, exhibits, boats and all types of paraphernalia for fisherman. One of the displays is temporary and very special. The original Bluenose was wrecked off the coast of Africa, and is about to be replaced with The Bluenose II. She is going to be launched next week, and the pictures show the galley table, with mirrors to show the signatures of the craftsmen who built this beautiful table. We wish we could stay longer and enjoy the launch, but alas, we need to move out before the weather comes in.
After a long day at the museums, we head over to The Knot Pub, enjoy a brewski and have our picture taken. Hey, I bought the scarf at the gift store in the Fisheries Museum!
