We had a quick overnight stop in Halifax as we travelled south to Yarmouth to pick up the CAT... More on that to follow. Halifax is a nice little town, much bigger than I expected, but just a ridiculously complicated place to get around. Streets are cut, freeways pass back and forth, lots of no-turns and oneway streets... we even had to drive through a residential pedestrian walkway at one stage in sheer frustration! Thank goodness for the GPS, although I am now back to just having a basemap, as it didn't have enough memory to load in all the detailed maps for all the places we are travelling. Still, thanks to some great Suzuki Club navigational skills, just having a basic map, a few well placed waypoints, and a reasonable sense of direction all came in very handy.

We drove around in circles for a bit, but eventually found a place to stay. After settling in, we went back into Halifax proper for dinner at a nice little Italian place, Donna called home, and then we walked along the harbourfront for a while. It was pretty lively, and included such highlights as playing King of the Castle on the giant wave. Well, most of us realised it was a wave, although Donna thought it was a giant tongue.

While walking along the dock, we nearly betrothed our Kate to a nice young Canadian boy who had spent the last year living in Australia, and whose plan it was to marry an Aussie girl so he could move to Australia permanently. Sorry Katey... not in Halifax!
