Saturday Morning Post


This past week in pictures:


Our route to Halifax, approaching the MacKay Bridge.


Very colourful houses on way to the Park.


 Province House, where our laws are made.


Glass building, downtown Halifax.


The original Bank of Nova Scotia.


New condos in South End Halifax.


They really are red balconies.


Where Queen Elizabeth II sleeps when she is in town.


A distant view of Halifax from Eastern Passage, can see both bridges if you squint!


Spring is almost here, at least these two think so.

The week that was.....

  3. Wonderful tour, Jim. I really like the contrast between the old and new. It's nice to have modern buildings, but I really like that we've kept historical ones right along with them. That photo with the colourful houses is really cool!

    1. Hi Martha. Yes we have a little of everything here in Halifax. Happy that the old ones are still around. Those houses are in a very old part of central Halifax. Have a good weekend.

  4. Thanks for this tour down Memory Lane with some new additions. Like the commenter above, I like how the old and the new blend together. Oh, but I know that bridge. I drove across it in my little VW Back When. It's got to be one of the most awesome bridges in the world.

    1. Hey Kittie! I can see you whipping across in your VW! This bridge does have an incredible view! And it is very high! Glad you enjoyed your 'memory tour'. There are probably a few different buildings and such.....we don't 'go crazy' here with growth in the Maritmes.

    1. It is for sure, Fiona! This beach is next to a fishing village on the eastern outskirts of the city of Dartmouth. Different from our beaches here in that you can see the city.

    1. Hi Vicki! Good to see you! Well, I don't think we are any warmer here! But we can always wish!!

  9. You read my mind! I was going to ask if those balconies are really red - and yes they are!

    1. LOL! I think more than just us were a little surprised at the colour choice.....this is Halifax you see!
      They just don't 'fit' if you know what I mean.

    2. When I first saw the RED I just couldn't believe what I was seeing....not in staid Nova Scotia....should be interesting to see if they remain.

  12. A beautiful city! My mom spent some time there in her youth. I think she would enjoy these shots -- I may have to email the link to her. :)

    1. Really Nancy? Her father in the forces? She would certainly see a lot of changes for sure but also some things that are the same.
