Many, many miles north of where we departed from in Boston.
We found ourselves in a wonderful sea-side city where much of America has roots to.
A city steeped with rich history and amazing scenery.
The wildlife was unique, yet very familiar.
We were met at the docks by two hansom men and their friendly dog.
And while our time there was short, they did an amazing job of showing us the highlights of their fair city.
But who are those hansom men that Ed is walking with?
Well, if you read the blogs Ocean Breezes or From Sophie's View, you know who these guys are.
When I learned that Halifax was going to be on our itinerary, I quickly sent off an email and set it all up.
We started out getting to know each other by walking around Point Pleasant Park. But we all felt like we'd known each other for years. It was awesome to see so many of the things that they both have photographed and blogged about for so long.
Miss Sophie was a most gracious host and delighted in showing us her Mr.Orangie and how to retrieve it when thrown. Perhaps I'll have her tutor Pugsley on this trade. He seems to sit and look at you with wondering eyes saying, "Why did you throw that over there?"
Miss Sophie and her staff took us to see the Dingle Tower with and overlook of this beautiful harbor.
We found this lion guarding the entrance to the tower.
But since it was at rest, we knew it was OK to enter.
Halifax and Dartmouth sit on this natural harbor that is a delight from any angle.
Even from above.
Lunch was delicious and the company was even better. The magic of the internet brought us together.
And the magic of wonderful personalities will make us friends for a good long time.
PS: Jim & Ron, watch for a surprise to arrive Thursday!
Just a little something from the place that I call home.
