Here’s Halifax!

We’ve arrived in Halifax – yay!  It’s a lovely sunny evening and the town looks peaceful and old… so much gorgeous stone… I’m a happy girl!

Helen met us at the rail station as promised, and drove us to the Inn.  What a beautiful place – multi-roomed, a kitchen, everything one could need… and there are slanted ceilings and hidey holes.  I love it!  There will be pictures tomorrow (or soon).

In addition to picking us up, Helen brought over a lovely bouquet of flowers that were actually from the Halifax Public Garden – while I don’t know what the flowers are called, I can appreciate their beauty and luscious scent.

After cleaning up and getting settled, we went for a walk along the waterfront.  There are still blossoms here – we get to experience them again!

We both kept taking pictures long after the light had become scarce – there’s just so much to photograph here – the contrast of old and new, everything and anything to do with water, etc.  After wandering for a few hours we found a pub with live music.  Perfect!  Had a great dinner and wandered back to the Inn.

I’m very much looking forward to the garden tour tomorrow.  Expect more flower/plant photos!
