My Trip to Halifax

Welcome to my first blog post! Ah, I have always wanted to have a blog to write about anything and everything I want and I have finally taken the leap to do so!

I just got back from a trip to Halifax, NS where I went to visit my sister, Nicole, who is working there for the summer as a PSW before finishing her last year of Nursing back in Ontario in the fall. I stayed with her for 6 days at her student house near Dalhousie University. It was a great location to be in as it is close to downtown and the harbour!

We first went to Peggy’s Cove which is a MUST SEE if you are travelling out East. It is BEAUTIFUL!!!

It was a windy day, so there were lots of waves to see and enjoy. I could have sat there for hours!

Another thing we did that I would recommend is going to the River Runner’s for a tidal bore river rafting tour! It was so fun!  We got to wear yellow rain coats and pants and got to enjoy the beautiful scenery of the Schubenacadie River. We couldn’t bring our cameras/phone on this raft as we all got SOAKED and were wearing head to toe rain gear.

Another part I enjoyed was just exploring downtown Halifax. There was so much to do and see and EAT! Cows ice cream is a must, as well as some bacon wrapped scallops!

Those are just a few highlights of my trip! I loved seeing part of the east cost of Canada and I can’t wait to go back!
