Continuing on with my perfect trip to Nova Scotia last week… Our accommodations were amazing. We were at The Cambridge Suites right downtown Halifax. Have a looksie at our great view:
When we first drove into the downtown area, we thought there was a huge event going on due to all cars parked on every street. Turns out that is their usual parking situation. The city is so built up that there just isn’t enough space. This was nicely demonstrated at the back of our hotel. That is a church on the left, and it looks like a parking garage on the right:
On the first full day there, we wandered around downtown, visiting shops and walking along the boardwalk. It was such a nice day. On the way back to the hotel, we passed this sign at the Citadel:
Ohhhh! Well that looks interesting! Since we had one more day to do whatever we wanted before my first presentation, I decided to phone up and inquire. I was told the public can fire the Snider-Enfield rifle starting at 10:00. Jan and I decided to head over (across the street from our hotel) right for 10:00am. I was first in line, while there were quite a few people touring around us. I need to trim and reformat the video Jan took of me shooting. I shall do that tomorrow. In the meantime, here is a pic of me and my coach, Charles:
I’ll hopefully feel up to posting another blog tomorrow. I’m very relieved to say that I feel quite a bit better today than the last three. I still can’t get over how weak I was. I couldn’t even hold myself up on my couch. I must say, it’s great to be vertical again! I don’t think that much weakness and fatigue was all from the trip. It just felt much more than that. I’ll be seeing my GP about it either this Friday or hopefully by next week. Hopefully I’ll feel even better tomorrow.
Today’s symptoms: Still quite weak but nothing like the last three days in which I was mostly bed-ridden. I had a really bad headache for most of the day, but I’ll take that over that wretched weakness and fatigue!
