From Cheryl’s journal: “Got up and had a shower. We left the campground around 8:30 and headed to the Halifax Walmart.”
“Found it was close to the Halifax shopping Centre. My purse had broken so I went over to find a new one. Once that was taken care of, we headed for the bus stop right next door and took the #2 down to the lower waterfront street. There was a boardwalk the full length with shops, restaurants and museums and where the cruise ship docks. We had a chance to sail on a tall ship. The wind was perfect. Marcel didn’t think we had time. $40 each for 1 ½ hours. I wish! We had a large piece of pizza for lunch thinking we would save money for dinner. Had an ice cream cone/bowl. Walked the length of the boardwalk and visited many shops. Did lots of gift shopping for those back at home. Had a beer, local “tall ships” amber and a serving of cauliflower wings, yummy! Marcel had enough. He wanted to go back to the motor home. I did buy a hoodie as the weather wasn’t that warm today and I was wearing shorts. The rain held off until we got home and then it rained hard till about 11:30. Went over to the food court for dinner. Not exactly what I was thinking of doing for dinner in Halifax. Oh well, wasn’t very hungry anyways. Slept well. Just a few minor water spots from all that rain.”
