I never tire of introducing friends to Halifax and the surrounding area. It's a delight to share the places I love, and see them through fresh eyes.
|Fisherman's Cove and McCormack's Boardwalk, here in Eastern|
Passage are always on my must see list.
Some years ago the older buildings in Fisherman's Cove were turned into colourful, boutique stores in an effort to attract visitors, and for a few years the plan worked. Then the cruise ships started taking their travellers to visit the better known Peggy's Cove instead. Sadly, many of the colourful stores now stand empty.
Marge and I wandered around the Cove, taking pictures of things that caught our eye, and then later in the evening we compared what we'd seen and how we'd captured it.
|What is it ?|
Here's a misspelled hint.
On Marge's first day here, I awoke with a raging headache, so she toddled off to Halifax on her own to explore.
To make up for that initial day of neglect, I took her to the Seaport Farmer's Market,

The beach at Point Pleasant Park made quite the impression on Marge.
Of course we visited the Happy Dudes Surf Emporium after checking for surfers at Lawrencetown beach on the Eastern Shore.
Low tide at Conrad's Beach offered a lovely stretch of wide beach for strolling.
Farther down the beach the conditions were perfect for wind surfing.
We topped it all off with a visit to my "secret beach".
And no, I'm not telling you where it is.
If you want to see my "secret beach", you'll just have to come for a visit.
