When my husband & I visited the East Coast this past summer, we popped in for dinner one evening, to a little restaurant in Lunenburg Nova Scotia, called The Grand Banker Bar & Grill.
For those that are not familiar with Lunenburg, it is a beautiful little coastal town that sits along the scenic south shore of Nova Scotia. The Grand Banker overlooks the harbour & serves a fantastic meal if you are ever in the area!
When we arrived for dinner, we were seated in a quaint little booth called the Captain Quarters. Adorning the wall were a variety of photographs of beautiful sailboats that had dropped anchor in the harbour of Lunenburg along with a number of notes & well wishes from various crew members that had stopped in for a bite to eat.
My eyes were drawn to one in particular; a picture of a magnificent sailboat with a scribbled note from the captain, thanking the staff of this establishment for their wonderful hospitality. At the end of his note, he left them with a poem which I thought was such a lovely sentiment & one we could all apply to our daily lives.
This is a picture I took one evening when we were out for a stroll along the harbour. The fog was just starting to roll in as it did most evenings. The captain’s poem is noted at the bottom of the photograph.
Have a wonderful week,
