It was a warm and sunny day for our visit to Louisbourg. We got there shortly after 10 and left around 4:30. It was well worth the visit. We did tours that gave a lot of background on the reconstruction of the fort. We were surprised to find out that much of construction work was done by retrained coal miners who lost their jobs when the mines closed. In fact, one of the reasons for federal funding of the reconstruction was to provide those jobs. Ben signed up to fire a cannon and we had lunch 1700s style, pewter dishes and a spoon was the only cutlery we could use. We finished the day with dinner on the water in Sydney.
