Default Hello from Halifax!

Hi CruiseMates! Just found free internet access in hotel lobby. Leaving Halifax today, heading home over next 2 days.
We saw HAL Maasdam and Carnival Victory in port here yesterday. Victory's bus excursion to Peggy's Cove yesterday was marred by a bus fire on the highway! Nobody injured, everyone evacuated in time, and on their way on another bus.
Did a harbour dinner cruise in Halifax - wonderful! Will have lots of pictures to post when I get home!
Miss you guys, seeya soon!

Oh donna,
I'm so envious of you. My Aunt Connie and Uncle Don live in a suburb of Halifax called Bedford. The last time I was in that area and Peggy's Cove was the summer I turned 14! Many, many, many years ago!!
We're thinking of taking the New England/Canada cruise next year on the Crown Princess. Of course, we have to get up to New York City to get the Ship.

I'll be looking forward to seeing your pictures! Glad the bus riders are OK.

Donna, one of Keith's favorite pictures is one he took from a restaurant near Peggy's Cove of a disgarded pile of lobster shells. I'll have to remind him to post it when we get back home.
