Sept 29 Saturday

On Saturday, before leaving Halifax, we took a city/harbor tour in the "Harbor Hopper" amphibious car/boat. This gave us a wonderful view of the city as well as the harbor. Halifax harbor is one of the biggest in the world.

We then drove out of Halifax headed for the northern part of Nova Scotia, Cape Breton Island. We stayed the night in Antigonish and headed up along the Bras d'Ors - a huge inland salty lake.
