We were just finishing up at the fuel dock when Amy, Dale and Harvey the poodle showed up. They had dingied over to walk up to the Binnacle with us. It is a great marine store. Very helpful. And they even suggested somewhere close by where we could walk for lunch. Very good burgers at the Armview. We saw this monument on the way back to the club. Unbelievable just how far this had travelled when the ships collided in 1917.
It sure looked like rain as we were pulling away from the dock and it started to thunder. We had made contact with Dan, the GM of the Dartmouth Yacht Club. He is the uncle of our daughter Sarah’s fiancé and he made arrangements for us to get a mooring at the club today. We passed Halterm and there were certainly lots of containers. Then we passed between Georges Island and the Halifax waterfront.
We passed by Pier 21 and Canada’s Atlantic Fleet.
We were heading along the Halifax waterfront when we recognized a familiar tug coming toward us. Wouldn’t you know, Theodore Too . I guess he heard we were here! He has been a busy tug on the waters this summer.
By the time we picked up our mooring ball, it was raining a bit more and started pouring right after. We had hoped to dinghy in to finally meet Dan in person but the thunder and rain was too much. Hopefully we will this weekend or Monday.
Talked to Monica tonight. Its her birthday today. Happy Birthday Monica!! They will pick us up in the morning. Lots of gabbing and catching up tomorrow. Also hoping to see more friends, the Yeadons, on the weekend.
Tomorrow, Scot, Jody, Margie and Becca are leaving Ambers. They had a great time visiting there. On Sunday, they are coming to Halifax and Becca will stay with us for a few days before returning to England. Cant wait! Blogs will be interrupted or maybe just a gallery of our time in Halifax and all the comings and goings.
