Road Tripping to Lunenburg

Easter Saturday saw three WWOOFers heading towards the shore and away from the farm. After some deliberation we all voted and decided to head to the town of Lunenburg for some sightseeing. The drive took 2 hours but with a few tunes and good company it cruised by. The first stop in the itinerary was lunch - as always - we are hungry workers. We headed to a local spot called the Salt Shaker Deli. I had the one pound of Indian Point Mussels Portugese Style with Sausage and a pint of Propellers London Style Porter.

After wandering for a bit, the cold weather was starting to take its toll so we headed to a small place called Sweet Indulgence to warm up and to sample their desserts. Annemarie had the Key Lime Cheesecake, Steven had a Pecan Scroll and I overindulged in the Peanut Butter and Chocolate Cheesecake. I am becoming a huge fan of the Peanut Butter and Chocolate combination (Reese's Peanut Butter Cups anyone??).

The only thing left to do after all that food was to walk somewhere - anywhere - so we headed down to the wharf. There wasn't too much happening down there as the Spring tourist season was still yet to kick in but it was very picturesque. We also stumbled across Ironworks Distillery where they distill by hand small batches of Vodka, Rum and some Liqueurs. I got myself a bottle of Vodka made from apples so I'll let you know how that goes when I crack it open.
