    We took a different route on the return trip to Halifax, driving along the coast of St. Margaret’s Bay. We passed the Swissair Flight 111 memorial, but we were going too fast to get a good picture. Here are a few coastline views…..

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Around 45 minutes later we were back at the Halifax Seaport. Patti and I enjoyed the trip to Peggy’s Cove, but agree that it’s a been there, done that, kind of thing.

    The Halifax Seaport Farmers Market…..

    In the nearby Plaza is a statue of Samuel Cunard…..

    We are going to have lunch at Murphy’s on the waterfront. We will need to take the Harbourwalk to get there…….

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Just our luck, a rickshaw and driver are available to take us there. You can’t beat the price at $5 per person!

    For lunch Patti had the fish and chips, and cake bites for dessert. I had the bacon wrapped scallops, a lobster roll, and an apple crisp for dessert. Everything was tasty. Between courses Patti would get up and take some pictures. The Harbour Hopper goes by us…..

    After the cab dropped us off, I went right back to the ship, while Patti wanted to browse the shops in the terminal building. She got back on board about 45 minutes later.

    After a stop at the cabin, I made my up to the Red Frog Rum Bar for a few Thirsty Frog Reds before we sailed. This is the hallway outside of our cabin…..

    [​IMG]

    Patti joined me up on Deck 10 for our sail away. As we are waiting to sail back to New York a bagpiper plays for us…..

    We made our way down to the Lobby Bar for a few drinks before getting ready for dinner. Here are a few views looking up the Atrium…..

    Tonight we are back in the Sunrise Dining Room for the second Elegant Night dinner. Here is tonight’s menu…..

    [​IMG]

    To start, Patti had the crab cake and a Caesar salad without anchovies! Lol. For her main she had the teriyaki salmon…..

    For my starter I had the stuffed mushrooms…..

    [​IMG]

    Here is tonight’s dessert menu…..

    [​IMG]

    Patti had butter pecan ice cream and I had the key lime mousse, which again was very bland and tasteless.

    Just wanted to mention that we brought another bottle of our own wine to dinner tonight, and again we were not charged a corkage fee.

    After dinner, Patti went to check pictures at Pixels, check our emails, then wanted to get a head start on our packing.

    I went to the SkyBox Sports Bar to watch some of the Denver/ Carolina football game and play blackjack for a while.

    Here is tonight’s turn down service, and our invitations to tomorrow’s VIFP Party…..
