Hi. We spent last week having a little vacation on Canada’s east coast, in Halifax, Nova Scotia, where we celebrated our 20th anniversary!
I'd never been there and Nick had only ever quickly passed through, so it was high on our list of places to visit. It ended up being a great place to go. A couple of aspects which really stand out, were the friendly people and the excellent food. It was a lot of fun.
We flew Porter Air from Toronto's Island Airport on Sunday afternoon and stayed five nights, returning on Friday afternoon.
We stayed at The Cambridge Suites Hotel, in a "Junior Suite" on the top floor, which had a little kitchen, a lounging area and a separate bedroom. A buffet breakfast in their dining room on the main floor was included. It was very comfortable and really quite perfect for our needs. (I'll include photos taken around the room and hotel in another post.)
Here is the story and photos of our first day there ...
Monday was Remembrance Day, and unlike in Ontario, this was a public holiday in Nova Scotia. We hadn't expected that and it meant that the shops were all closed and the streets were very quiet, but the weather was beautiful and it was a great day to take a long walk and look around.
So, after watching the Remembrance Day service which took place right across from our hotel, we headed downhill, toward the waterfront.
