We drove into downtown Halifax with three things on our minds - coffee beans, history and hiking boots. Two out three ain't bad. More on that later.
Our day started off like most days, with the cats waking us up with the sunrise. This gave us plenty of time to map out our objectives over breakfast. Once Ruby finished her post breakfast walk, it was time to explore. Our first stop was Java Blend Coffee. Unfortunately, they were all out of light roasted whole bean coffee. Don't worry. We still have a couple bags in reserve.
Despite our disappointment, we soldiered on. Our second stop was the Halifax Citadel National Historic Site. Kathy had high hopes of scoring another pair of Parks Canada Red Chairs. She was not disappointed. We even met a lovely park ranger who was kind enough to take our photo.
Tomorrow we move further north. This will be our last stop before catching the ferry to Newfoundland.
