He asked us to simply open our front door and go for a walk.
But I didn't do it. Can't make me. Don't want to. Feeling petulant.
So I waited until last Friday when I had to go into Halifax for my Lunch Bunch Choir,
and went for a walk there.
And in the interest of honesty in blogging; I cheated.
|St. Matthew's Church with the Bell Alliant building behind.|
Like so many days before it, Friday was cold. Too cold. Too freakin' cold.
I hustled out of choir and across Barrington Street, to take a quick photo of ye Olde Burying Ground, and the intriguing sign that hangs next to its closed-for-the-winter gate.
|St. Mary's Cathedral Basilica|
With numb fingers I held my camera above the top of the iron fence to get this view of the lovely church on Spring Garden Road. Not sure of the identity of the building next door.
Next to St. Matthew's church stands Government House; the home of the Lieutenant Governor. The Lieutenant Governor represents the Queen, and carries out constitutional and ceremonial duties, at least that's what Wikipaedia says.
Now comes the part where I cheated.
I jumped into my car and hung a left on Bishop Street, crossed Lower Water Street and parked in a lot beside the boardwalk. At any other time of the year this would have been a pleasant five minute walk. That shows you how sick of winter I am that I drove three blocks.
There, I visited an imaginative art installation that I think I may have shown you before.

On the far side of the harbour is the Woodside oil refinery, and to the right of that, is George's Island.
|The caption for these two is: "Got drunk. Fell down".|
I love how this building reflects the boardwalk seating area and the far shore.

If it hadn't been bitchin' cold, I would have shown you much more of the 3 km. long boardwalk. Instead, you'll just have to take my word that it's well-worth a visit.
For now, I'm heading back into hibernation until spring comes.
And I'm not talking, "date-on-a-calendar" spring.
I'm talking warm spring.
