Default Halifax, Nova Scotia

In port today. Plan on the “Hop on for Hops” tour, which allows us to do a limited pub crawl to sample local menus, beer and wines.

This picture was taken from our cabin looking out over the harbor.

We were in Halifax a week ago (at the end of a bus tour of Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, and PEI). We really enjoyed Halifax and know you will to. Are you going down to Peggy's Cove?

We are back aboard ship. Didn’t have the chance to do Peggy’s Cove. Saw lots of the downtown Halifax, which is super! Too many places to mention. I could spend lots more time here, but the ship leaves at 7:00.

I still have the (totally) hand-made quilt with sailboats on it I bought in Peggy's Cove in 1974. I think we paid $30 for it, and it was a total splurge for us. Nova Scotia was gorgeous.

It’s hard shopping here, because there are many beautiful clothes, but mostly wool, fleece, or flannel. Not worth the money, as I’d only be able to wear MAYBE one week in TV!
