Day 13 – Catch up with an old friend

We had a great night in Halifax and a great sleep at the hotel and actually ended up all sleeping in for the first time on our trip.

With sleeping it didn’t give us any time for some more exploring since we were meeting up with an old friend for brunch so we could catch up and meet his girlfriend.  We enjoyed a nice breakfast at the Ardmore Tea Room on Quinpool Rd.  It is a greasy spoon type of restaurant where the servings are a good size and the prices are right.  We had a great visit and caught up on all of the most recent news.

Once breakfast was over we were headed back to Truro, but not without a stop at Darthmouth Crossings which everyone out east had been talking about.  This is similar to any of the new shopping plazas being built full of “outlet” stores.

Once we were back in Truro we met up with Dave’s oldest sister for a walk in Victoria Park. We followed the path up to the waterfalls and on the way back stopped under the shade of a tree for a visit and to let Paige stretch her legs some.  There are quite a few trails in this park, so next time we are out we will have to explore more of them, since we didn’t really have time on this trip.

Do you have any favourite hiking trails in the Turo or Halifax areas?
