Painting a boat blue is thought to bring bad luck, or so this story goes. Two seasoned Bluenosers were fishing in a little blue dory off Lunenburg harbour as the fog rolled in. They failed to return when the day lost its light. Searches the next day proved fruitless as the blue of the dory seemed to have melted into the blue of the ocean. But the astonished town folk tell a tale of how the little blue dory miraculously reappeared, a month later, docked at a fish shack. Another south shore mystery never to be solved.
