Wednesday, June 11, 2014 – Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada
We arrived in Halifax under clear blue skies and enjoyed a day of great weather. We started out by following the boardwalk to a playground. The playground was shaped like a submarine and Stevie and Hannah enjoyed it. Next to the playground was a large wave that the kids attempted to climb. A nice perk was a free wifi from the information center next to the playground. We got to check e-mail and Stevie played Clash of Clans for a little bit as well.
We ate lunch in a restaurant near the playground called The Waterfront Warehouse. The menu was actually quite limited and lacked gluten free options (our usual fall back is hamburger but we were informed that they put flour in their hamburgers). The only thing that Stevie could eat was lobster. Steve ordered one and split it with the kids. I had a club sandwich and I ordered pasta for Hannah from the kid’s menu. The lunch cost $70 and the kids did not eat much.
After lunch we walked up the hill to the Citadel. We paid for tickets and walked through the fort on our own. After the Citadel visit we walked back to the playground and the kids got to enjoy the sun and fresh air a little more before returning to the ship.
Overall it was a pleasant day. The city was very nice and clean and people were nice.
