Day 11 – Our Last Day in Nova Scotia

This is our last day in Nova Scotia. In a way we’re sad that we have to leave but excited about what this day will bring. We start the day at Back in Thyme B&B with a wonderful breakfast that Jeff, our host, made.

As you can see everything was wonderfully decorated. Here’s a photo of our room.

Our trip route today takes us from Sheet Harbour on Nova Scotia’s east shore, down the coast to Halifax, the large city in Nova Scotia. After a few hours in Halifax, we shoot across Nova Scotia up to Sussex, New Brunswick where we stop for the night.

We got an early start and headed down the coast. The weather was cool, misty, and very foggy. We think it might be clear inland and this must have been a typical early morning coastal fog and mist. By the time we headed into Halifax, the fog and mist had lifted.

Here are some photos from the coastal ride.

This day is Deb’s birthday. Here she is on Lawrencetown Beach, outside Halifax. As you can see fog and mist shroud the beach. We were able to find some great rocks. This is our last time we can experience the Atlantic Ocean.

Wikipedia says the following about Halifax:

Halifax is the largest population centre in Atlantic Canada and largest in Canada east of Quebec City. Halifax was ranked by MoneySense magazine as the fourth best place to live in Canada for 2012…

Halifax is a major port city for Canada with a lot of historical background. We had only a few hours to spend in Halifax so we went straight to the downtown waterfront and the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic. Here are some photos we took on the water front.
A large cruise ship from New York was in the harbor this day.
Some interesting art. The lamp posts got tired of standing!

We cut our visit of Halifax short due to some threatening weather headed this way. So we headed up the 102, as the storm clouds start leaking water. We were able to keep just ahead of the storm all the way to New Brunswick.

    Your trip brought back some great memories of Nova Scotia and New Brunswick, like Cape Breton Island even though it rained on us for the entire day. We thought Halifax was great. It figured prominently in the rescue of the Titanic survivors. Local music was interesting, kind of a Irish fiddle music.

    Thanks for taking us on the tour and for the fantastic pictures.
