A ShOrT StAy

Hubby and I took 5 days away from our home base here in Saint John NB and drove on over to visit my BIL in Halifax Nova Scotia.
Halifax is a beautiful city with lots to see and do and at the time there was a jazz festival on so the waterfront area was ALiVe with entertainment.  The weather was fantastic... (that's for my fellow Aussies enduring winter at home) Ooohhh I'm BaD!... 'cause the sun was shining and the temperature was on the rise!


There are lots of interesting shops to stroll through and cafe places to have a meal or a coffee break. Beautiful buildings and historic sites and statues to look at... and very friendly people to chat with.


We even had time to visit a vineyard for a taste of the local produce... hiccup


Before a tasty meal of the local catch of the day... yum!


We had a wonderful stay in Nova Scotia, so I thought I would share a few pic's. 
I hope you  EnJoYed  them !

I haven't ever been to Halifax. My friend got to go there for work a couple of years ago and I made a little "Halifax Envy" quilt mat. I did see a blues artist from Halifax at the festival I went to here a few weeks ago. His name is Charlie A'Court. Was he at your show? I thought he was fabulous.

Ooo that looks a lovely place to visit! It's nice to see some sunshine somewhere.

I've tried replying to your post on my blog but I'm receiving delivery errors though the address is right, so I have replied, it just didn't get through. Are you full?

Sounds like lots of fun and the weather here in Melbourne, Victoria is miserable at the moment. Yours sounds much nicer.
