Queen of the Atlantic

In Lunenberg with Warren and Diane we saw the famous Nova Scotian racer, The Blue Nose II. If she looks familiar may be that you've noticed her on the Canadian dime. Unfortunately, during our visit to the city Blue Nose was tied to the dock, sails stowed and the decks a tangle of young people touching up the bright work. We did not even try to photograph her in such unbecoming circumstances. Weeks later on our way south to Maine, we edged out of the fog to see her coming up with sails shining in the sun. A bit stunned after a rough 24 hours in the cold and wet, we had difficulty getting a good shot as the waves bounced us.
