Chester, The Most Quintessential Town, Part 1

Ya'll, I cannot even begin to describe to you how wonderful this little town of Chester is.  Walking around this quaint village you are surrounded by sailboats floating in the harbor, houses of every color, blooming clusters of flowers, years of history, verandas with views, local cafes and water views that will knock you off your feet.  Basically, this little haven was as pleasant and pleasant could be.

I'm so jealous that my brother and sister-in-law get to live there 5 months out of the year, and I'm so upset that it took Wil and I 3 years to go visit!  We absolutely did not want to leave.

I know that I could not speak Chester and the surrounding towns justice, so I'll just let the pictures speak for themselves....

These next 6 pictures are from Peggy's Cove.  We stopped by there on our way back from the airport.

Our housing for the week in Chester wasn't too shabby either...

 On the outskirts of Chester is another beautiful historic town, Lunenburg.  Lunenburg, established in 1753, is an official UNESCO World Heritage Site because it is one of the best surviving examples of a planned British colonial settlement.

Pictures to be continued in Part 2.....
