Vacation in Canada Day 10

This was our last day in Canada. We ate at the Delta Hotels Halifax, a Marriott. We had enough time to hike through the nearby Citadel Fort before driving to the airport. I can’t believe how much of Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island we have seen in ten days. Handsome said he had a great time. The stress of work had intruded a few times. He took a few calls and texts from work.

THE CITADEL FORT

At the Citadel Fort, I spotted more red chairs. Hehehe.

More chairs!

GOODBYE RENTAL CAR

Handsome filled up the tank on the rental car on the way to the airport. I mentioned that $1.07 seemed cheap for gas.

“That’s per liter,” he said.

$1.07 per liter!

Oh. Yikes.

Before we left for Canada, we had added the international calling plan to Handsome’s phone for an extra $5 per day over his regular charge. It was worth it. We used Google Maps GPS to plot our routes. The phone charger adapter worked in the rental car, which did not have a GPS. The roundabouts apparently confused the GPS.

The GPS apparently loves the roundabout.

I was somewhat eager to return to work on the third book in my Compass Crimes Series. Though my idea of a vacation was reading on the beach or relaxing on a cruise, this whirlwind tour of Nova Scotia impressed me. The Canadians have shown tremendous patience and hospitality. Many volunteered to take our photo at scenic places. Handsome saw all the places he had chosen to see, so he was happy.

At the airport, the news blared the usual strife and mayhem. I tuned it out in favor of a good book.

Grateful for a direct flight home, I was content.
