This weekend was a great weekend! First we had a girl’s night at Kel’s place on Friday night and then all hungover, Lisa and I, along with my boy Chad and our friend Gillian, headed out to George’s Island. George’s Island is one of 2 islands that sits in Halifax Harbour. McNab’s-a large tree covered island, sits at the mouth of the Harbour and is open to the public. George’s Island has apparently NEVER been open to the public before. I have been totally obsesses with it since I moved here-it always looks so romantic and lonely, and there are ghost stories about it too! 😉
Alright-be warned-this is a heavily photoed! ;P ha h aha h aha
I thought this was the Married Officers Quarters but upon looking at my map again its actually the lighthouse keeper’s house
Gillian and Lisa hiding from the wind-it was super insanely windy out there-Halifax itself is really bad for the wind but that day was EXTRA windy!
Chad crawled up this bank, so Lisa went up after he came down so she could see. This is right after she got scolded to come down by security 😛
I zoomed in on this because I can see my apartment! Weee! We live on the 3rd balcony down on the building smooshed between the front trees-right up from the butt of that cruise ship
Fort Charlotte is actually built INTO the island, so that the enemy couldn’t see it. They would face a deep ditch if they came running up it!
These cannons were so big that they actually had to build the rooms AROUND them, instead of building them and then installing the cannons afterwards.
