So, we made it to Halifax, about mid-day, and wandered out in search of lunch. For a brief glorious hour, it ceased being what RJH calls "fresh" (at least a 20 knot wind which makes it feel shockingly cold for June) and the sun shone and everything was lovely. I took some photos, but I didn't take enough time. Occasionally it is intimidating trying to take snapshots with a professional photojournalist in tow - but here's a glimpse:

He described the looming Irving refinery as looking like 'the gates of hell'.

After our outing we rested than I dragged him out to the pub with scientists (mainly German), but now, in recompense, we're watching the Stanley Cup finals, game 1.
