Day 7 - Halifax, Canada

Arrived in Halifax at 07 am and already 07:30 am, we were on the road on tour. 
Today's first excursion went to Peggy's Cove, a very charming little fishing village south of Halifax. At the sea the light house and the small port was lobster boats and lobster traps on the wharf. The houses were in different color because the color was originally the family emblem when the boats come in with their catch. We drove along the coast, where there was some little fishing villages in the protected  bays. 

Back on the ship, there was just time for lunch before the day's second excursion - a 'whale watch trip "- it was considerably more watching than whales !. We saw the  heads a few gray seals. The whales had traveled south for the winter. 

For the evening we had dinner in restaurant Chic - - 'gravad lax', Chicken Masala and hazelnut cake / apple pie with ice cream - served by our South African servant, Jo Anny.
