Greetings & Update from Historic Halifax, Nova Scotia

   After a wonderful ride around Cape Breton Island on the Cabot Trail, we headed for Halifax yesterday, stopped for lunch and a tour of the Museum of Industry at Stellarton, and arrived here in Halifax late yesterday afternoon.  Except for some early morning mist on a couple of days and some scattered fog on parts of the last leg of the Cabot Trail, we've had great weather all along the way. Here's one of the many photos taken along the Cabot Trail, none of which fully captures its scenic beauty.
   Three riders from the Halifax Harbourside Rotary Club, led by Clarke Paynter, rode up to Stellarton to meet us at lunch and rode with us back to Halifax; and we have two riders from Wolfville who met us at Pictou and have ridden with us throughout our visit to Nova Scotia.  At Stellarton we were treated to a catered lunch and a visit to the Nova Scotia Museum of Industry, including a "photo op" arranged by the museum to help publicize the museum and our visit.  Here's one of the photos taken during the photo session.
   We're leaving Halifax this morning in bright sunshine, heading along the coast for Peggy's Cove, Lunenburg, and then across the peninsula to Digby; and the weather forecast for the next several days is 'more of the same'.  
   We're heading back north across New Brunswick and Quebec towards Montreal after today, with only three more nights on the road until we get back there on Tuesday.  
   Everything has gone well so far, except for the usual inevitable minor glitches all along the way.  Only about another 800 miles or so to go . . . .    
   Great trip, great fellowship!  
   Details later (after we get back).
