Halifax, Nova Scotia — June 29, 2009

Monday morning, we woke up approaching Halifax, Nova Scotia.  It was raining and gray.  Our morning adventure was a bus ride to Peggys Cove.  We enjoyed the drive through the countryside.  By the time we got to Peggys Cove, the rain had stopped, but it was still gray.

Peggys Cove is a very small fishing village that has been given special protection status to keep it from being overdeveloped.  We took some photos of the lighthouse and then I went looking for a geocache.  I then met up with Wendy and we walked around the village.

In the afternoon, we took an “hop-on-hop-off” bus tour of downtown Halifax.  It’s a nice looking city.  They have 3 Titanic cemeteries; Halifax was the closest city to the Titanic disaster and many of the bodies were brought back to Halifax.

Later in the afternoon, we walked the boardwalk along the Halifax harbor.  Wendy found a crystal glass shop that has hired many of the workers from the Waterford plant in Ireland.  We got a quick tour of the shop while the workers were grinding the glass.

We did see the sun in Halifax.  It was projected onto the floor of the dock.
