The morning after - where the fireworks had been

After a day trip down to Peggy's Cove to see the famous light house on the rocks, a cup of tea in Mahone's Bay with all the beautiful churches reflecting in the water and a dander around Lunenburg (home of the bluenose sailing ship), we headed back to Halifax for the Canada Day Parade. We enjoyed a picnic in the Public Gardens and made tracks for Cabot Trail in the north of Nova Scotia that night. There, we enjoyed fireworks in the town of Baddeck where Alexander Graham Bell invented the telephone!

What a day!

(Photos to come someday soon! :-)
