Halifax Nova Scotia

Wednesday September 9th. It is 3:30PM and we just sailed into the Halifax harbour. It’s a little weird to be in a big city again. We have been living like trailer park gypsies for the past 3 months and find it a little overwhelming (and exciting) to be in the “Big Town” again. We entered Halifax without problem and docked at the ONLY marina that could accommodate the size of our vessel. When we arrived at the ROYAL Nova Scotia Yacht Squadron, we did so in the “Captain Ron” way of doing things, blowing puffs of exhaust smoke and water all over the bright white shoes of the dockhands that received us. Sorry guys.... Little faux pas... Despite this, we were very comfortable enjoying “Mr. Joyce’s” (X Tim Horton’s owner) dock space while he was out. Wayne, the marina manager on duty, loaned us his half ton and we joyfully went shopping at our “Toy Store” know as The Binnacle chandlery. We also made the essential Liquor Store stop, where we later found that we were UNDERcharged for 2 cases of beer! We though the bill was low, but never realised until after we got back... Thanks Halifax.... This Bud’s for you!!!

Tomorrow, we’re off to Lunenburg... 
