78-Leaving St John

Monday morning we finally arrived in Halifax, with a heavy fog and light rain. We just ordered room service for our morning breakfast so we could sit on our balcony and watch them dock the ship. Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada, was founded in 1749, is located way up on Canada’s eastern coast. Halifax is known for two terrible disasters; 121 of the third-class Titanic passengers were laid to rest here, plus in 1917 a gunship blew-up and several thousand people died, with more than 9,000 injured.

The next day we moved though the night through a terrific storm with high winds that really rocked the ship, ending up in the Bay of Fundy, at Saint John, New Brunswick, Canada, established in 1783. It was very cool temperatures here, and we had to put on our warm clothes, but it was still nice and sunny.
