Where I stayed
What I did
Brewery tour, Maritime museum, and beautiful waterfront
There is about a 10 block boardwalk in downtown Halifax right on the bay. It was a gorgeous day, sunny and about 78 degrees. First we took a tour of a local brewery, the first in NS, founded in 1820 called Anderson Keith's. The guides were all dressed in costumes of the 1800s and the tour ended in the basement pub where we could drink almost all the beer we wanted and they put on a great show of singing, dancing and story telling.
We had a great lunch next door at a local pub of the most delicious lobster stew we had every had
We walked through the Maritime Museum here which is a history of the sailing and shipping industry in NS. Also, they had a whole floor of Titanic memorabilia because Halifax is where the rescue ships that picked up survivors and bodies returned to and most of the dead are buried in a local cemetery.
Met the group tonight - about 42 of us, most from the States, but also a few Canadians and one couple from Trinidad.
More tomorrow. Bags out at 7 am and on the road by 8:30. - Sorry, Chris and Andrea, this is not your kind of time table. Italy will be different.
