Nova Scotia 2
I have been trying to get a post ready, but time keeps jumping ahead and I run out of it! I will try to tell you more about our trip to the Maritimes. Don’t forget it was 18 years ago! I Do have a journal that I kept while we were away, but it is on a high shelf in the closet, and I cannot reach it, or even know which one it is as it is too high for me to read it’s identification!
We arrived in Halifax in the late evening and settled down for the night.
When we ventured out of the hotel the next morning it was to the sound of bagpipes playing right next door, where the Privateers Wharf was located…. it was part of the historical site.
We spent a few days in that area and saw the art gallery and the Royal Nova Scotia International Tattoo, And spent most of a day on Citadel Hill. My Husband was in the army, and had been stationed there for a while, and he wanted to relive some of those memories.
As we left Halifax, heading for Peggy’s Cove, we passed “Round to it Road!”
Peggys Cove was so very beautiful, but swarming with other tourists, just like us!
At this stage of the game it is a bit difficult to remember things in “proper order”, so I won’t even try!
We stayed over night in Lunenburg, at the Coach House at the Lunenburg Inn. We went to a huge craft sale where we saw a lot of Christmas ornaments for sale. This was in July! This was where we sailed on the Bluenose ll.
Heading on down the South Shore of Nova Scotia, going to Voglers Cove to have lunch in the house my grandfather built. We had to take a ferry. They had no actual schedule, but if they saw you on the “other side” they came and got you. There were four of us, and the car… We could not believe what they charged us… neither will you! Fifty cents!
Enough for this time! You will need to come back if you want to hear more about our trip!
