My trip to Atlantic Canada

Atlantic Canada is the region of Canada comprising the four provinces located on the Atlantic coast, excluding Quebec: the three Maritime provinces – New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, and Nova Scotia – and the eastmost province of Newfoundland and Labrador. The population of the four Atlantic provinces in 2011 was about 2,327,650.

This is my first and very likely would be my last time to visit these beautiful regions in this part of Canada, so I am going to really enjoy this trip and take as many photos as I can. Please enjoy.

I'm actually only visiting Nova Scotia, PEI and New Brunswick. And my first stop is Halifax, the capital and also the largest city of Nova Scotia with a pop. of approximately 400,000.

The weather has not been great in the few days. It has been raining and foggy and really makes it hard to walk around and take photos.

Anyway, this is the first few sets of images I took since I arrived..

Street scene in downtown Halifax.

There are lots narrow one way streets in Downtown.




I know its supposed to be a wave but it looks more like a woman's tongue to me.

Unlike the dirty color in Vancouver, the clarity of the seawater in Halifax really impress me.

I believe it was built for the G7 summit which Halifax hosted in 1995. The inspiration for the design is nautical: the back of a ship.
