Halifax Vacation Part 4 - Final Day

There are donair places all over Halifax, and every pizza joint serves up donair as well.  On Friday morning, our last full day in Halifax, we shared a donair for breakfast.


In order to make the most of the day, we did a lot of walking, spent some time by the waterfront, and snacked at many places along the way.

We slurped oysters ...

And shared some froyo ...

The Stubborn Goat is a really cool gastropub, with an extensive, creative menu.  We shared a couple small plates including the pickled veggies, and deviled eggs.

In the evening we hit up a cool, minature, parking-lot farmers'-market-type event.  It was just on the corner of a block (it was no larger than what is pictured), and had about ten vendors selling eats/drinks/local products, and a DJ spinnin' tunes.

It was very "neighborhoody", and fun!  We bought a pakora, and it was so good that we had to get another.

Next up, we stopped by The Old Triangle to take in some live music before retiring to our hotel for the evening.

On Saturday morning we packed up our stuff, and ordered lunch to our room - donair, with some cheesy breadsticks too.

For dinner we shared some lobster mac and cheese in an airport restaurant, and by about midnight we were home sweet home.

It was a wonderful summer vacation, and we both look forward to visiting Halifax again one day.

Do you have any summer travel plans?  Getaways?  Roadtrips?

I love little markets like the one you stumbled upon. Have you been to Smorgasbord in Brooklyn? I went there a couple of summers ago and it's one of my favorite things I've done in NYC. There are tons of food vendors and the prices are all so reasonable.

We don't have any summer travel plans. We tend to stay put in the summer since it's our favorite time of year in Minneapolis and feels like such a short season. I can see why you travel during this time of year, though, since you are off work during the summer. For our next trip, I think we will be going ot Bend, Oregon in late September. We haven't booked it yet but hopefully we will soon!
