July 25 – Halifax Citidal

We woke to a rainy morning and had a relaxing leisurely breakfast with Jon and Linda.  Our escort and guide for the day was Jon and we decided to go to the Halifax Citadel, an historic military landmark built by the British Army.


The army had the task to defend the port of Halifax which at the time was a very significant harbour on the east coast.


Like a lot of the attractions across Canada the young men and women in uniform are university students.

I am sure it gives them a patriotic perspective which they will carry with them for quite a while.



Construction was everywhere we went.



We later drove around Halifax and came across this very historic building; Pier 21, the Canadian Museum of Immigration.

This immigration building was the site where our soldiers last set foot on Canadian soil and headed off to war in Europe. Many of them gave their all.
