Arriving at Halifax
We docked in Halifax around 9:30am, so we had a chance to watch the entry.  Halifax is an industrial city without any remarkable buildings, but the ship docked close to the center of town.  We walked along a boardwalk from the ship and made our way to a maritime museum.

The museum featured an exhibit about the Titanic because this is where the survivors and recovered victims of the disaster were brought.  They had a 3D movie of an expedition to the wreckage site from 1998.

We walked up the hill to the citadel overlooking the city and toured that.  It's a functioning garrison with British soldiers in uniforms just like at Buckingham Palace.  We took a few pictures of the citadel and looked at some of their exhibits.  Then we walked back to the ship, stopping at any interesting shops we passed.

I found a free WiFi coffee shop near the ship and am having a good time with the free internet before getting back on the ship.  Tomorrow we arrive at Bar Harbor at 8am and go on an all day tour.  After that we have one more sea day and then we head for home.
