Hi all! The final cruise stop before returning to Brooklyn, New York for our New England Cruise was Halifax, Canada. It was a pretty crazy day with 4 cruise ships docked at once. We took a tour to Peggy’s Cove as several people said this was a must see old fishing village with a Lighthouse. I love Lighthouses so it made the 1+ hour drive each way worth it.You could view the waves breaking in a couple different areas.
There is a visitors center which highlights the story of Peggy and all the Fisherman.However, the harbor and shops are definitely a highlight. Everyone is so friendly and most include local, handmade items.
Part 2 of our tour included the hope on hop off bus that we took to the Maritime Museum stop. We had lunch at Salty’s right on the Pier (it was fantastic!) before walking along the 1.5 mile boardwalk checking out the casino and a few shops. Ironically I didn’t take very many pictures this day.Daily Snap Recap:B: Scrambled eggs with salsa, bacon, Watermelon and an ok dirty latte
S: I shared a pack of spicy rice crackers & peanuts with The Husband
L:@Salty’s Peanut butternut soup with cheesy garlic bread plus 1/2 a tea biscuit (looks like a biscuit tastes like a roll), Garlic shrimp with Thai Rice and veggies
D: Salad, roll, Chilean Sea Bass with brioche prawns….I didn’t realize the mushroom/leek ragout would be so creamy so I only ate about 1/3 of it as I just don’t have a taste for creamy dishes but I ate both shrimp.
Not to worry as I made up for it with ice cream for dessert.You can read about our other Cruise stops by clicking any of the below:
