Halifax and Peggy's Cove

Overlooking the harbor in Halifax.
"The Old Burying Ground" (1749-1844) in Halifax.

Government House, residence of the Lieutenant Governor of Nova Scotia. Next 6 photos, Peggy's Cove.

Above, pictures like these I took of Peggy's Cove have long been readily recognized ...people all over Canada and in many other parts of the world immediately associate them with the province of Nova Scotia. However, the city of Halifax (top and below) has many beautiful buildings of a different sort. Having lived all my life in western Canada, I found myself constantly delighted by the architecture of older, long-settled parts of this vast country.
