Today in Halifax with the Wheelchair

It is a beautiful day here and we are having lunch by the Harbour - lobster roll for Sully and fish and chips for me.  Spent the morning in the Maritime Museum reading about the Titanic(a big part of this town) and the Halifax Explosion which killed 3000 people in 1917 when two ships collided in the harbour - one carrying TNT.  Hard to imagine sitting here in this beautiful setting and soaking up the sunshine.

Yesterday hired a taxi and went to Peggy's Cove which was supposed to be a must see - but as the taxi driver said it all comes down to good marketing.  We drove around the Uni (50000 students) and also went to the Citidal and the graves of the Titanic victims.  The saddest of these is the unknown child who was only recently identified as an imigrant from Finland.

Overall wheelchair access has been good here although the hop on hop buses could not take us.  However I think we did a better deal with the personal service from the taxi.
