July 23 - Halifax

Friday July 23, 2004 – A day of relaxing from driving and simply enjoying Halifax. We took a short drive to Peggy’s Cove, but again had a day of heavy fog. In spite of the fog, we took some pictures and met people. It appears that the newspaper article written about us has made us a bit of a local celebrity. People coming off the tour buses knew about us and wanted to hear about our story. They knew about the break down and barbeque. Pretty interesting.
 
 
 
 
 
 
After our time shooting pictures at the light house, we drove slowly back to Halifax. We stopped at an antique shop where the proprietor asked us to take pictures of his shop with the Model A’s. Since Larry had a digital camera and computer connection, he was able to upload the shots onto their computer. Again, the shop owner had read the article and gave us a second copy. This one is in a different newspaper, however.

We had an excellent lunch at a small café where we tried the lobster rolls. Yum! Bob Butcher had the wildest lunch, however. He had a main entrée of pecan pie and ice cream and then for dessert he shared strawberry shortcake with Sylvia! Bob also has the knack of making a fog horn noise with his mouth, which has been most appropriate during this trip!

 
Once back in Halifax, we went our separate ways. Several attended the brewery tour of Alexander Keith.
 
 
 
 
After the tour, Larry and Susan did some walking and touring while others hit the boardwalk. Halifax is a nice city!
