I love writing "Greetings from Halifax." I'm having a little trouble with loading my pictures, but still want to say hello. Only four emails from the office and I am definitely starting to relax. Did some sightseeing in Halifax and then took a bus tour to Peggy's Cove, a beautiful tiny fishing village with an extraordinary lighhouse. We had the most perfect clear and sunny fall day I could ever ask for. Not much in the way of autumn colors, but still enjoyed the day very much. Even got in a little Christmas shopping and could have spent the rest of the day at the store I found. The gifts are so cute they will be a separate post and I think Jess and K are going to be very happy.
The ship is fun. Nice table at dinner and have met lots of very friendly people to chat with. I took a Yoga class yesterday and enjoyed the champagne art auction and the Comedy Club last night. This evening's activity is a trivia contest, another evening at the Comedy Club and then dinner.
Tomorrow is St. John, New Brunswick. I'm hoping for another perfect fall day. Wish you all could be here and share the crisp autumn air, sea breeze and fun!
P.S. Dear Canadian friends, I found my favorite candies today...Smarties! They were as good as I remembered and am hoping to find a COWS ice cream store tomorrow. COWS is just the best ice cream. If I get to COWS that will definitely get its own post.
