An awesome salt water adventure
I love most of the water activities; from the basic act of showering or swimming to outdoor water activities such as rafting and kayaking. While I was a kid my mom used to tease me by telling that I should have been born a fish. I would respond to her by telling her that I was an octopus. Anyway that was almost two decades ago.
Therefore when the company I was working with sent me to represent it in an ongoing annual summit conference in Halifax, NS – Canada, I was so excited. It wasn’t my role to attend such company meetings but I was chosen since the person responsible was on leave and her deputy had other commitments to attend to so he was not available. I being in the managerial department too was then requested to attend the 3 days conference.
The atmosphere in Halifax was cool and hospitable and I really enjoyed the stay while the conference was ongoing. I didn’t get to tour much of the area during the conference official days because the better part of the day was spent in the monumental building where the conference was hosted and in the evening I had to spent time writing reports about the day’s activities and reporting back to my seniors.
When the conference ended I got the opportunity to tour the area during the extra two days that I had before heading back home and I didn’t waste even a single moment thinking of what would work for me in this ancient Canadian Municipality.
Nova Scotia having being the home of thousands of lakes and rivers and having several saltwater coastlines gave me the opportunity that I’d always yearned for. I knew there were a huge variety of activities to choose from.
The first water charter that I visited gave me a listing of the several activities that they offered and since it was in midsummer my first choice was an half day session of whale watching and then a night time tour of sport fishing.
My first day was the most epic as we set to Peggy’s Cove. The scenic views were very spectacular and I enjoyed every bit of it as we cruised through the coastline and then deep inland. The tour guide was amazing and lovely and well versed with the region. Utmost I loved her approach and hospitality as she went on to explains different water adventures to me. There were many whales and I ended up taking several pictures of them. There were also beautiful puffins that we sighted and I must agree that the experience was like no other.
By the time we got back to Halifax Metro, I was tired, happy but hungry. I ate my lunch and took a nap as I prepared for the evening show which was even more exciting and had several beautiful incidences thought constitutes a post for another day.
