Oh Canada! Part 2

Day 6 was a trip to Halifax, Nova Scotia. It happened to be the hottest day of the cruise.

Jeff and Helena posing in front of the Citadel with a view of downtown Halifax behind them

Jeff posing with the guard at the entrance to the Citadel. Interesting fact learned while at the Citadel - although it was built as a fortress, it was never involved in any battles...because it was built as a defensive measure after Halifax was attacked!

Helena standing a top the Citadel with Halifax in the background

Still trying to get it to fire

Jeff posing in front of the Beavertail stand on the waterfront. If you have never had a beavertail, it is worth going to Canada just for that. It is a flat piece of fried dough that they can put most any topping on. Jeff's favorite is the nutella topping (as evidenced by the next picture).
