Fondest memory: Halifax's downtown is small and perfect for strolling around. It makes for the perfect pub crawl. It's also home to CFB Halifax, where sailors from all over the world come to. You'll meet them in all the bars. Also, across in Dartmouth, is CFS Shearwater, an air force base, where my younger brother was based. So for the single female, it was a town crawling with men!
When going yo Halifax, you have to find time to see all the sights & do all the touristy thinks. Their is a lot of Canadian history in the area that you would not see in most other parts of the country.
Fondest memory: My fondest memory of Halifax is to be able to sit outside at street bars to have some lunch & a mug of beer. We have some beautiful sunny fall weather most of the time we were there, it made it very enjoyable.
The music. Here is one popular Nova Scotian Folk song:
The sun was setting in the west
The birds were singing on ev'ry tree
All nature seemed inclined to rest
But still there was no rest for me
Farewell to Nova Scotia, the sea-bound coast
Let your mountains dark and dreary be
And when I am far away on the briny oceans tossed
Will you ever heave a sigh and a wish for me?
I grieve to leave my native land
I grieve to leave my comrades all
And my aged parents whom I always held so dear
And the bonnie, bonnie lass that I do adore
The drums they do beat and the wars do alarm
The captain calls, we must obey
So farewell, farewell to Nova Scotia's charms
For it's early in the morning I am far, far away
I have three brothers and they are at rest
Their arms are folded on their breast
But a poor simple sailor just like me
Must be tossed and driven on the dark blue sea
Fondest memory: Taking over the basement in the Split Crow bar, and drinking for 16 hours straight. The picture is my friend Dan, after a full day of drinking. I hope I didn't look that bad!
