I arrived in Halifax Sept 15 and was fortunate to be picked up at the train station by my friend Carolyn. Halifax isn't that big a city, but always big to a newcomer.
I've walked the waterfront (a few times), taken the ferry to Dartmouth, visited the excellent Immigration museum and spent hours working out my accommodation and travel for the next 2 weeks in Nova Scotia.
Will be staying at hostels around the province, perhaps visiting almost every one of the 8 or 10 listed as I have 11 days to tour before departure on Sept 29. Decided for car rental and hopefully have arranged sale in Halifax of the Ravenna 26 harp I used playing across Canada. It will make my flight back easier. Will be seeking out walking trails, history and local phenomena and hope to visit at least 1 harpmaker and a few harpists - Alison
