The Halifax Dartmouth Ferry
WOW a double WOW -- it was sunny today Wednesday, September 17, 2008 --- Ann & I took advantage to do part of theAlmost Free Family Fun in Halifax, Nova Scotia DIY Cruise Ship Excursion the Harbour Cruise portion --
The Halifax-Dartmouth Ferry is the oldest continously operated salt-water feery in North America - from 1752!! I discovered something new ---- I did not know this --- and it means our Almost Free Family Fun in Halifax, Nova Scotia DIY Cruise Ship Excursion is cheaper than even I thought --- if you tell the " fare taker" you are coming back on the same ferry -- she/he will give you a transfer to use for the Dartmouth return -- saving you two dollars per person!! That is good news, isn't it!?
I was able to snap a number of snap-shots on the way over and back.
We ended our little excursion by stopping in at Perk's for coffee and a muffin.
The cruise portion took a littlle over 40 minutes in all --- but truly great scenery .
