Halifax, Nova Scotia

I arrived in Halifax first thing in the morning yesterday. We took the shuttle from the airport and got dropped off right at Nathan's place since there was no one else on board. This was really nice since it was a wind and raining warning. As the rain blew sideways and everything that wasn't tied down blew across the street, we ran into his apartment. Nathan, after being here for 2 months, seemed unphased.
We spent most of the morning sleeping. Then we hung out, talked, watched movies, and Nate made me a delicious supper. We had lemon and dill salmon that was the best I've ever had.
Once the weather cleared up a bit, we took a long walk.
Nathan showed me all the giant estates in the south of Halifax. I had never seen such huge houses up close. There is nothing even remotely as fancy as that in Edmonton.
Then we walked by where the Occupy Nova Scotia protesters had been, but the park was cleared out. It was a bit creepy seeing all the police surveillance around the park.
This morning we went for lunch at the Wooden Monkey. I had the most amazing salad.
Then we walked down to the habour and over to the farmer's market. The weather was beautiful and sunny.
After the market, we headed to Sobey's to pick up some groceries and wine. On thew way home we made a stop at Just Us! for coffee.
We are currently roasting a chicken for supper. Tonight we are headed out with some of the other grad students for a pub night. Fun!
It feels so great to be back with Nathan and just doing normal, every day things.
