Undaunted, we set out for a Halifax city tour including the waterfront, Public Gardens, Spring Garden Road (aka Millionaire's Row) and the famous Citadel. This charming town was founded in 1749 and since it's port is the closest American port to Europe it has always been an important site, particularly during WWI and WWII. It was a nice way to ease into our tour.
We drove along the coast to beautiful Peggy’s Cove, a town of about 60 full time residents that has one of the most frequently photographed lighthouses in the world. Unfortunately it was foggy when we were there so our photos don't do it justice. We wandered the town, enjoyed our first lobster roll of the trip and took photos of the local sites.
