Fisherman’s Cove within Halifax City Limits

My Travel Addiction  and  myself,  can be found in  Halifax,  Nova Scotia, Canada today.  I arrived  last night and today was all for exploring the city.  It was a beautiful day with the sun shining and the temperature about 65 degrees. There were a few trees starting to show their fall colors but not enough to get excited. The downtown waterfront in Halifax is where the action is.  It’s a busy place,  full of  historical buildings, shops, restaurants, ships on display,  many city tour options and a maritime museum. Venturing a few blocks uphill I found churches from the 1800’s, art galleries and lots of renovations  happening.  I then ventured onto Fisherman’s Cove Village for dinner which was wonderfully  picturque.  I had a Seafood Stir-fry in a Pineapple Curry Sauce which was yummy .

Two interesting tidbits:

An interesting Canadian food optiion:  Poutine:  – made with french fries, cheese curds and grave.  Yes,  it looks as gross as it  sounds.

I also saw  a wonderful display about the Caandian artist  Maud Lewis who lived in a tiny  house and only had a 3rd grade education.  Her house, along with many of her paintings were on display. If you have time read more about her – it’s really an interesting  story.
