Mulgrave Days

I went to Mulgrave, near the Canso Causeway, with friends who used to live there. By chance, it was Mulgrave Days then, complete with a small parade, rides and a barbecue.

Visiting friends in the big city of Halifax

Spent time in Halifax, visited the Mary Black gallery to see rug hooking by Laura Kenney and the Halifax Farmers Market next door. After lunch we strolled the Public Gardens.

Georges Island, seen from the rooftop of the Halifax Farmers Market. That's a colourful moss rooftop garden in the foreground.

The Halifax Farmers Market rooftop garden, on the harbourfront. My camera doesn't do justice to the bright colours of the mosses and small flowering plants.

We sat on a park bench facing the pond at the Public Gardens, while a lovely group of musicians played big band music at the Bandstand behind us. Fine thing to do on a sunny Sunday afternoon in the city.
