Oh Canada!
So Glad you have both enjoyed Canada. Your blog of Halifax brought back many memories of our 6 months stay there in 2005 when Andrew was on Sabbatical at Dalhousie Uni. We visited Peggy's cove twice once in the August and once in Dec when it was windy and freezing! We also went to Lunenburg and Mahone Bay and other gorgeous little coastal villages nearby and also went to Prince Edward Island of Anne of Green Gables fame. We had a brief 3 day stay in Toronto and went to Niagra falls but sadly didn't get to Montreal - perhaps one day...Very, very cold here (July in Melb is always horrid) and Andrew and I have had the flu ( despite flu shots) and have both had Asthma. Infact, I am writing this from by sick bed. Enjoy the rest of your trip. Jxx
