In June we travelled by rail from Vancouver (British Columbia) to Montreal (Quebec) where we spent five nights. We then took an overnight train to Moncton (New Brunswick). Next we drove to Prince Edward Island, Cape Breton (Nova Scotia), and flew home from Halifax.

When coal declined in use, Ank, there were a lot of unemployed coal miners in Nova Scotia. The Federal Government retrained them to become masons so that they would be employed in the reconstruction of Fort Louisbourg. While a lot of original stones were used to rebuild, many more stones had been carted away over the centuries and used elsewhere. This meant that the stonemasons had to cut/chisel new stones. ❤️❤️❤️

Here's a more complete explanation:

Hope they can manage to make their project a success.It deserves it.Thanks Faye.♥☺♥☺♥

I think this is an ongoing project...maintaining what has been built, uncovering what still lies hidden, and extending the reconstruction bit by bit according to plans. I hope more people plan to visit each year as it is well worth the journey...and part of Canadian history.

Andie...last year Suzy (pumpkinhead) and her husband camped here overnight...she posted puzzles, too, of what they managed to see in their visit.

Thank you...you Three Musketeers! ;DDD

A very nice reconstruction indeed and so nice to be able to spend a night there .Wonder how you feel ,knowing its past and what happened there.♥☺♥☺♥

They really have made a marvellous job of the reconstruction, top notch. Thanks Faye

gemstone

If you ever visit, Ella, you can actually stay overnight inside the fort. They have a building that you may stay in, or you can camp in a tent that they provide in the quadrangle of the King's Bastion Barracks...you really should allow two days to visit just to be able to see all the buildings and do all the planned activities. :)))

I just love all the buildings at historical Fort Louisbourg. Beautiful!

gemstone

I imagine you saw some original stonework like this in Quebec City during your visit there, too, Ardy. It's good to think that unemployed coal miners have been retrained in a new skill...and yes, dandelions don't ever seem to give up! LOL ❤️

I know this is a reconstruction but it looks like the originals were quite substantial buildings. I see dandelions here too, Faye. Thanks. ♥♥
