Had forgotten what a beautiful city Halifax is with its well treed streets, history and polite people. If jaywalking, drivers will stop for you!
We had two dinners at the Armdale Club and enjoyed both: limited menu but great tasting food. The balcony overlooking the harbour is a gem.
We visited Pier 21 the immigration museum (updated since my last visit in 2008) gives a realistic impression of what the 860,000 people who arrived here would have experienced. We then walked along the Halifax Waterfront. Unlike Kingston, Halifax has maintained its waterfront for people. We arrived at the Marine Museum which has good displays of Halifax’s maritime history from the British founding in 1748 to the 1917 explosion to the convoy formations through both world wars.
On the Sunday Chris and I spent a few hours at the Citadel (worthwhile visit) before heading to Debbie’s brother for a salmon bbq …. now that was tasty! Always a good experience to visit with locals to hear their experiences and feelings. After dinner we walked over to Halifax Common to listen to the live music. Along the way we passed the Emera Oval a speed skating track originally built for the 2011 Canada Games. It’s now a permanent year round track with many things for young children to enjoy.
