A few days in Halifax

I’ve been on vacation in Halifax since Saturday evening. I’ll leave this afternoon. Today has been pretty rainy so I haven’t done much but otherwise the weather has been great for November! It was so nice to leave the blowing snow in Goose Bay on Saturday.

This was a pretty cheap vacation as I booked the flights with Aeroplan miles and got a 4 star hotel on Priceline for just $61 per night. The room even had a view on the harbour though it was on a lower floor but I wasn’t expecting a harbourview at all so I was pleased.

It is definitely not tourist season here which has made museums and such quite quiet but also means that there were are less options of things to do. I managed to stay busy enough though (well, until today but that was because I didn’t want to spend too much time walking in the rain) and while the tour options were quite limited to did go on a tour to Peggys Cove with a unique form of transportation: the sidecar of a motorcycle!

I’m not exactly excited about heading back to Labrador tonight but it is only for three weeks. I’m really hoping the selling of my furniture goes smoothly!
