15: Good Times!
16: Peggy's Cove Nova Scotia
17: One of the most beautiful places on earth. It was like looking at silence, or serenity. The soft fog against the harsh ocean and the vibrant, bright colors against the fog. The disparity was entrancing. It was a dream to photograph!
18: Exploring Peggy's Cove
19: The Cove Lighthouse We explored the rocks around the lighthouse and at the ocean's edge. Spectacular!

21: The buildings in Halifax were beautiful. We stopped for lunch at McDonalds where we had lobster rolls! The kids liked the Canadian maple leaf on the McD's sign. We waited for our pink topped bus outside this beautiful church.
22: Halifax Citadel | We saw the changing of the guards at the Citadel, high on a hill over-looking the harbor. History everywhere.
