Our last days on the Atlantic seacoast we stayed in Eastern Passage, overlooking the Halifax Harbour. Lawrencetown Provincial Park was a lovely place to saunter along the beach, watch a few surfers and take in the vastness of the vista.

We took a passenger ferry across to the Halifax harbour which was filled with cruise ships, military boats, tall ships, cargo barges, the Harbour hopper amphibious vehicle, and of course little tugboat Theodore Too.

For coffee break we licked our lips over a shared cinnamon sugar Beavertail. (kind of like Rollkuchen)

Thoroughly enjoyed the Marine Atlantic Museum Which included a tour on board the CSS Acadia, a former Oceanography charting vessel.

The little dory "Whimsy" leaves us with rich reflections and memories of our time in the Maritimes.

Trudy, I have so enjoyed following the trip that you have just completed. About 5 years ago, Ed and I did just the PEI and NS portion... and would go back in an instant. Your photos and comments awakened many wonderful memories. Enjoy settling into the delights of your new home.
Cheers, Cousin Bert
