Sorry this is late.
After 5 days at sea on Royal Caribbean's Jewel of the Sea, we came into port in Halifax. We walked along the pier and saw two fishermen catch 5 mackerel - one with 2 hooks and the other with 3 hooks on their respective poles. Walked to the Maritime Museum - quite interesting! Lots of info on the local disasters, sad to say, but also info on different kinds of boats and the sea in general. Hopped on a Gray Line bus to Peggy's Cove - very informative fellow at the wheel. It was a beautiful drive around the city and out to the cove. When we arrived there, he suggested we try the homemade gingerbread cake at the large restaurant. I'm glad we did; it was excellent. There were quite a few people at the Cove but we could still take some great photos and find some solace, too. When we got back to the city, we walked around downtown for a while. There sure are a lot of banks there. I guess since it's the capitol, eh? As we left the docks, the sun was setting and a piper was piping. Many small sailboats in the small coves. We saw a rather large pod of whales as the sun went down and land was disappearing.
A very beautiful city, especially in the later summer months. The weather was delightful, too. I imagine winters can be quite brutal, though.
