Happy F.O to you!
July 8 - 11, 2003
Summer has finally arrived in Halifax and along with the warm weather the tourists have arrived. Like the sunny days they appear suddenly, as if out of thin air. This past week downtown bustled with tourists and locals happy to exchange winter-wear for shorts and shorter tops. Strange amphibious tour buses—such as the Harbour Hopper and its imitators—roam the streets as well as the harbour. Crowds of tourists flock to the sidewalks and boardwalks seeking out Barret’s Privateers amongst the sailboats and crisp ocean air.
