So nice to be able to upload again!

This is a replica of the 'Hector' in Pictou harbour, Nova Scotia. The 'Hector' arrived in Pictou in 1783 after a long and difficult voyage (12 people, mainly children, died on the journey) with over 200 Highland Scots emigrants on board. The settlers had a very hard time at first, the promised cleared farmland was not provided, neither was the food to tide them over the first winter. Despite the hardships the settlers were soon joined by other Highland Scots, many of them Gaelic speakers. To this day parts of northern Nova Scotia have signs in English and Gaelic, reflecting the origins of the people.
