... Jambo in a container to ship him home: must be getting too old and sentimental…..
After that we wandered the town, joined the throngs on the waterfront boardwalk, many from one of the huge cruise ships docked in Halifax for a day and visited the excellent Maritime Museum where we read about the colossal explosion of a ship in the port back in 1917. This was big enough to flatten much of the town and was considered the biggest man ...
... found our way to the brewery.
We really enjoyed our tour of the Alexander Keith's Brewery. It was just under an hour, and everyone was dressed up in period style clothing. We were all part of a "play," where Mr. Keith himself was going to give us a tour of his brewery, but we managed to make it all the way through without ever meeting him.

Which meant he would be at the start line beginning the race with all the Olympians and world class athletes. Pretty neat!
A thing to definitely check off the bucket list!
Guess its me next time in Boston and Ryan cheering from the sidelines ...
