Day 3 - Halifax Nova Scotia

Note: Due to the lack of free wi-fi on-board the ship, this post and others from the ship will be delayed until we can snag some free Wi-Fi.

Today was a much better day than yesterday. Clearer skies, although still some overcast but moments of sunshine made for a pleasant bus tour of the Halifax area and out to Peggy's Cove. (Google it to learn the relationship to The Titanic and to the crash of Swiss Air Flight 111 which crashed in the Atlantic nearby.)

Peggy's Cove has a lovely, much photographed lighthouse sitting on a rocky shore with Atlantic waves crashing all around. It is a beautiful site.

The scenery along the coast is lovely but rugged, dotted with little fishing villages.

We returned to Halifax and picked up the 2nd half of our journey, a Hop-on, Hop-off double decker bus tours- 3 separate 30 minute tours around the city. We rode on Route B around the harbor area. We hopped off for lunch at the Blue Nose restaurant for lobster rolls - very good.

Next and last stop was The Citadel caping a high hill overlooking the city and Halifax Harbor. We picked up route C for the return to The Dawn.

We are back onboard the ship relaxing before dinner.

It was another interesting and fun cruise

That is all I'm saying.
