August 23, 2013 Day 93  Eastern Shore of Nova Scotia
Nova Scotia, Canada

This morning, we took a taxi to and from the grocery store (aptly named the Superstore) and did a major provisioning of the galley.  We need a larger refrigerator!  After lunch we took a tour of HMCS Sackville, the last of 269 corvettes built by the allies in WWII and that served in the Canadian Navy.  We also visited the Map Store which has many maps and books and gifts. 

We learned once again, that we had to move our boat.  So now we are on the Cable Wharf, not quite as protected from the wind, but we will manage for one night. The management did make it worth our while though!
Returning to Halifax by ferry from Dartmouth
We caught the 4:45 ferry boat to Dartmouth, a 15 minute ride across the Halifax River. We walked around for a little while then rode the ferry back. At least we had a good view of the Halifax harbor. We came back and had burgers at the Hart & Thistle Pub and then returned to our boat to get some things done.

We plan to leave in the morning and head south.  We have enjoyed being in Halifax. It is a thriving city.  But, it is time to move on to Lunenberg.

(Note: we have many photos to post but the wifi is very slow here, so hopefully we can post them at our next stop.)
