Saturday Morning Post


The week in pictures:


A couple relaxing overlooking the Northwest Arm.


Last Monday at Point Pleasant Park the police cordoned off 
a large section near one of the 'forts' . A woman's body was found there.
No foul-play was determined....natural causes.


At the Park, this seagull atop WWI and WWII memorial monument.


One of many 'visitors' in Halifax Harbour.


And Another.....


A very old (and still popular) ale brewery in Halifax.


A mural advertising the 'Historic Farmers' Market' in Halifax.


One of the bridge towers.


Downtown Halifax skyline as seen from Dartmouth, across the harbour.


A very quaint village outside Dartmouth where you can find 'Fisherman's Cove'
.....a working fishing village.


The ever-posing Sophie with Ron at Fisherman's Cove.


A few very colourful lobster traps.

  1. I love your snippets of Halfax. Lobster traps have changed a lot...I still envision the old wooden ones that seem to hang in most fish restaurants NOT near the ocean.

    1. You know Chania, next to this stack of traps was a stack of the wooden ones. I took a photo of each but liked the colour in these for the post....you know how it is! lol

  3. Hey, I toured Alexander Keith's old brewery the last time I was in Halifax! It was fun. The farmer's market was still located there too at that time.

    1. Debra, you should see Alexander Keith's grave site! Huge monument in Camphill Cemetery. I'll get a photo of it next time I'm in to see Dad (at the hospital that is!)
      That market is still operating....some of them didn't want to move to new market location.

  4. Great photos, Jim. Looks like a lot of adventures have been enjoyed. Your area has so much to offer. I think I'd really enjoy it. One day I will make it to the east coast and tour all the beautiful areas.

    1. Thanks Martha. All of these photos were taken 'to and from' our jaunts to the park in Halifax.
      Yes you WILL enjoy a visit here. And if you do we would gladly show you around.

  5. Oh, that ship from Copenhagen made me homesick, which is weird since I'm not Danish. I love all these pictures, I was going to pick a favorite, but couldn't. They are all so great.

    1. But it is in the 'general' vicinity of your home, Inger. Thanks, it was fun taking these as we were whipping through the city last week. As it gets warmer, we'll stop and park and walk around a bit.

  6. Jim- I feel like I've been given a private tour of your beautiful home area. I love the fishing village-- so quaint and colorful-- love the lobster traps.

    I am obsessed with freighter ships ( I'm such a weird chick)! I keep a record of the ships I see on our travels. I actually saw the Nordpol when we were in the Caribbean just a few weeks ago!

    love
    Vicki

    1. Glad you liked this mini tour Vicki. I too like looking at these freighters....always have. Used to dream about stowing away and heading to an unknown place (when I was much younger of course lol). That ship really gets around, what a coincidence!

    1. Thanks Randall. The view in the header is looking out into the mouth of Halifax Harbour with McNab's Island in the background.
      The woman died of natural causes.
      Thanks for stopping by.

  9. Well, that was a fun tour!
    That photo of the couple on the bench invites me to make up lovely stories in my head.
