On Day 180 of traveling the world, we posted a blog of our visit to…Halifax! Just 1,837 days later, we’re b-a-a-a-ck! The big difference is that last time, our visit was part of a driving trip across the US and Canada, and we were here for three days. Five years later, we stopped on a cruise, and our visit was just a few hours. But we still had fun and still took a ton of photos. On Day 180, we discussed Deadman’s Island, the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic and its Titanic exhibit, as well as the Halifax Harbor Explosion of 1917. So, today will be a supplement to that post – we are focusing on the Halifax Harbourwalk and some of the downtown area. That’s what two hours got us!
Harbourwalk is just amazing, and is one of the longest boardwalks in the world, spanning 2.5 miles. In addition to a cruise port, there are many other wharves, a plethora of restaurants and food kiosks, parks, playgrounds, museums, galleries, and more. Quite impressive. We walked most of the boardwalk, taking photos and enjoying the day (after preparing for all-day rain, according to the weather report, which never came ). Then we walked into town, and found the Argyle Street Pedestrian Path, with shops and restaurants. It had loads of businesses, but there were not many people around. We discovered a few churches and went inside the only one that was open, St. Mary’s Cathedral. But that brought our wandering to an end. Overall, a fun walking day at the edge of the Atlantic Ocean. We love the quirky Canadian place names and their sense of humor.
