Nova Scotia is beautiful -with rolling hills and highways with almost no traffic!This is a city with history. Many immigrants came through Pier 21. The front has been saved and incorporated into newer buildings.Victims from the sinking of the Titanic are buried here.There is a mix of old buildings on the waterfront and new glass towers.The wharves have been connected so that you can walk along the waterfront.Theodore Too is part of the decor, along with tall sailing ships and harbour tour boats.Across the Bay is Dartmouth.We had lobster at Salty's with a view of the harbour.Halifax Harbour is a protected area and still active with commerce and the military.There were tall sailing ships, a taste of the past. Commercial ships, cruise ships and little sail boats remind us that we are in the presentI was impressed that the telephoto on my little FugiFilm camera could create this photo of McNab's Island to the west. Once again, I'm impressed with my new camera. Apparently the FugiFilm has a sensor that is able to pull detail out of shadow and darkness.
