Looks pretty unassuming on the outside, doesn’t it?  Don’t let that smallish exterior fool you, however.  Step inside St. John’s Anglican Church in Lunenburg, Nova Scotia, and prepare yourself to be amazed:

Stepping inside is almost like walking into one of the masted schooners that used to ply the waters throughout this area some 150 years ago.  Even the ceiling appears to have been fashioned from the overturned hull of some long-abandoned ship.

Like the hull of a great ship

Every detail is meticulously crafted, from the display of carpentry skill to the stained glass work that adorns it.  Even the pews are works of art.
