By 9am we were parked streetside on Water Street in Halifax! Early Sunday morning is a great time to find parking. We walked to the nearby Maritime Museum of the Atlantic (good, but depressing), Salty's on the wharf for seafood lunch (good but expensive), and an uphill walk to the Citadel!
The weather was glorious and our souvenir of a wine holder from Nova Scotia Crystal will remind of us our special day in that historic, lovely city.
A quick drive out of Halifax led us to the Lighthouse Trail south. We stopped at an antiquey general store in Margaret's Glen for delicious Farmer's Ice Cream (made in NS).
A few miles more led us along the water to the very nice Wayside Campground (Passport America- 25% discount in July & Aug, $25 total full hookup with wifi- Thanks, Evelyn!).
We walked around the campground and water, met nice people in the campground (including a man from Halifax who has summered at the cg for 21 years), and enjoyed a family dinner outside. Two of our campground neighbors were from Florida and one from California- it's rather unusual to see Americans up here camping.
It was a beautiful day and keeping the driving to a minimum allowed lots of time for relaxing and fun.
