You might think that having lived there for three years, the urge to photograph everything I come across in Halifax might have worn off by now. You would be wrong. This trip was my longest since moving away, and I got to revisit most of my old haunts, as well as many friends. It was a really great time (despite the cold grey weather, and despite getting sick towards the end!), and I came home with plenty of happy memories, fun souvenirs, and a full belly.
I considered breaking this post into a few different parts, but ultimately decided that with summer heating up, it was better to take the one-and-done approach. Warning: under this cut, massive amounts of photos await.
Day 1: taking the train from Moncton. Getting settled in. Meeting friends for trivia at Rockbottom. (We lost).
Day 2: lunch at Coburg Coffee. Public Gardens. Doing the Spring Garden shopping route. A dog named Ruby. Dalhousie University campus. Old Burying Grounds. JWD Books. Fantastic dinner at Chabaa Thai.
Day 3: the Dawgfather. Granville mall. Courtney & Andrew. Dinner at Five Fishermen.
Day 4: lunch at Economy Shoe Shop. Susie’s Shortbreads. Maritime Museum of the Atlantic, especially the new “Hello Sailor!” exhibit. Merlin the Rainbow Macaw. The waterfront. Watching the ferries go back and forth. Dinner at Vinnie’s pasta bar.
Day 5: my first trip to Seaport Market. Delicious pain au chocolat and pizza. Watching the fog roll in and out of the harbour. Garrison Brewing. MORE CUPCAKES! Sitting in Grand Parade. Strolling down the cold and windy waterfront, wrapped in a big wool blanket. Dinner with friends at Henry House.
Day 6: fixing my M.A.C emergency at Halifax Shopping Centre. Disappointment over Mexico Lindo being closed. Lunch with friends at Italian Market. Home again.
P.S. I finished the sock.
