But when you only have one day to see the town you
look passed the weather and make the most of it. We found the Trinity Church a few blocks from the port.
It had beautiful stained glass windows.
While wandering around the harbor we came upon this moose. There were several light houses along the harbor.
The Three Sisters Lamp is at the end of the harbor.
The story says that three sisters watched for their
husbands to come back from sea at this point.
In Halifax the fog stuck around most of the day. We walked around the gardens.
Visited the Maritime Museum.
Halifax was an important city after
the sinking of the Titanic.
Many of the surviours and dead were
brought back to land through Halifax.
We spent hours climbing around the rocks and looking in the tidepools.
As we pulled into the harbor the
Portland Head Lighthouse was passing by.
This was a great vantange point to see the light.
The coastline was just fabulous.
Next stop was Bar harbor Maine.
We spent some time hiking the shore trail.
In the morning we spent a few hours kayaking in the ocean.
As we paddled around the harbors islands,
we saw seals, eagles, loons, and dear.
It was interesting paddling a tandom yak.
Notice who is doing most of the work;) Our ship was "parked" out in the harbor.
We took a smaller craft to shore.
It was a cloudy day in Bar Harbor.
We didn't let that stop us from having a good time.
Next..... What do you do on a sea day???? Stay tuned to find out!
