Spending the day in Halifax & Dartmouth

Ferris Wheel small

Quick notes from my trip, continued:

On Wednesday, I drove my sister and her best friend (who is also visiting from Quebec) to Halifax, as a belated birthday gift. Visited some of her favourite stores during the day and then I drove then to the waterfront, since her friend had never seen the city before. We decided to park and take a stroll along the boardwalk during the early evening before sunset. Also dropped into a restaurant and enjoyed a great dinner; I stuck with salad, but had a taste of the other dishes — a maple glazed salmon fillet grilled on a cedar plank served with garlic mashed potatoes, and a platter of bacon-wrapped scallops with Cajun dust.

On our way back home, we passed through Dartmouth and decided to stop at the small travelling fair we had noticed on our way in. It was brightly lit up and looked so pretty against the skyline and I wanted to get some pics. Got some nice shots of carousel horses and other rides. My sister and her friend got a little crazy and went on the Twister on a whim and came off giggling like fiends and then she talked me into going on with her. We had great fun and it reminded me of another memory of that particular ride was about 20 years ago — also with my sister and her same friend, when I visited her in Montreal one summer.

I also discovered that I can actually fill up the 1GB card in my camera — I ended up taking 343 high resolution pics that day – a new record for me!
