These are all photos from my recent trip to Halifax. I still didn't get as comprehensive tour as I would've liked, but that just leaves some for the next time.
The weekend's weather could only be described as bizarre. After narrowly missing a wild snow/wind storm on Friday's drive down, Saturday was gorgeous and mild. That made me think I'd have a nice warm day Sunday to take a walk downtown. Alas, the winter lightning of Saturday night was followed by a sunny but cold day Sunday to walk around Dartmouth. Here's the pics from Sunday.
We decided at this point it was too cold and proceeded to walk back to the car. The next few shots are from that walk.
A couple from a stop at one of the lakes. We were trying to get a photo of ourselves in front of a fountain in the lake, but my batteries died.
Batteries charged and ready to go! While my fiancee and my cousin were both looking at wedding dresses, I took a walk around Halifax. The day ranged from sunny and mild, to sunny windy and cold, to windy with flurries. It changed about every 15 minutes. I lucked out that all the photos were from when it was sunny.
A look back to where we were yesterday.
And now on with the walk.
Oh those Tuckers!
Glove got in the pic a bit.
The evil Cogswell, taking up valuable highrise space.
A touch of glove.
Start getting cold, so I decide not to visit the South End and just continue up the hill.
Granville pedestrian mall.
Got fed up with the cold, so I returned to my car to get my new toy I got for Christmas (Canon Rebel SLR film camera) and make my way down to the water again, then up to the citadel. I also took my digital, so here's the shots from that excursion.
First, an almost 360-degree pano from the top of Metro Park.
Skyline from Sackville Landing.
This is when I get the call from my fiancee, she wants my camera at Spring Garden Rd. Well, I walked up the hill first to shoot some panos, then went to meet her.
Got to where she was on Spring Garden and just missed her. But it did get me in the neighbourhood to take these shots.
After I returned to my car, I called my buddy for lunch, and ended up helping him buy a new car. All in all, it was a great weekend, even with the bizarre weather. That's all for this trip.
Cheers from the future engineers!
