The Citadel

The Citadel in Halifax is in the heart of downtown, and just a short, enjoyable walk from the harbour. With more history than you shake a stick at, not to mention all the action with the marching, and the bagpipes and a very impressive cannon shot, our afternoon was anything but boring. You can read more about it Here.



Don't even try to get a smile out of that guy.

I actually took a wee nap down there, on the cool grass while we were waiting for our people to regroup.  They
were off exploring some dark tunnels.  Strange are those that want to explore the dark, unpredictable places.


The view great from up top.  It had to be a great look-out point, to keep an eye on those approaching enemies.

  2. Looks like an interesting place to scout around in and good for you to catch a few winks on the grass.

  5. Fascinating! And great shots. These places were built to a formula, I believe. Curiously enough, we've just visited a Fort Geoerge in Scotland, similar age - will be featured on ABAB eventually.
