As there was a break from the torrential rain that has been pounding this island, we ventured into Halifax for this 'Halifax on Sea' event, where it was advertised as a beach in the middle of Piece Hall.
I suppose our expectations were a bit high, as what it really seemed like was a couple of big sand boxes, rather than a beach. Chicago with its miles of sandy beaches has spoiled us in a way.. my niece here in England can't believe that Lake Michigan is really not a sea.. anyway, I digress..
One has to enjoy the sun while we can still call it summer, and with the kids now out of school for six weeks, the buses and everything else was pretty much packed to gills.
We did enjoy a bit of a peaceful walk along the canal, and as you can see, the water wasn't too high, as we seem to have been lucky to escape flooding in our little section of the country.
