Maritimes Tour Journal, day twelve:
Our last stop in Nova Scotia was at Grand-Pré National Historic Site where we learned about the Acadian settlers and their deportation. Most fascinating was discovering how Acadians diked and reclaimed the land from the sea to establish fertile farmland. A statue of Evangeline (the Heroine of a Longfellow poem) stood front of the chapel, at which the Choir took a few moments to sing. We visited the memorial church where choristers sang Ave, Maris Stella and Lift Thine Eyes.
