Halifax, Nova Scotia
Our first port of call
Halifax is a city in transition as it is one of the fastest growing communities in Canada. Available housing due to large populations of increased immigrants and refugees is causing massive inflation in the local real estate market. A house valued at $300,00 only 5 years ago is coming onto the market at $1.5 million so a dramatic increase.
Halifax was the destination for many of the survivors and victims of the Titanic disaster in 1914. Today there are no less than 3 cemeteries which hold the remains of over 250 victims. The largest cemetery holds 205.
Halifax is a city of approximately 300,000 which is where the vast majority of citizens of Nova Scotia live.
Our excursion was to Peggys Cove which is a quaint lobster fishing village approximately 1 hour away from the city center. Peggys Cove seems to be one of those timeless small villages on the edge of nowhere. It was quite easy to get into the "vibes" of the town. Following are photos of Peggys Cove. The light house is the most prominent feature of Peggys Cove.
