Next was St Andrew's Anglican of 1890 in Hansport. Here too, we were lucky enough to have the minister unlock the church for us so that we were able to see the wonderful scissor-beam roof.

We ended up in Lunenburg in the evening for the opening reception of the 2010 SSAC-SEAC conference, and we are looking forward to exploring the south shore in our free time.
