Lobster @ Salty’s (Halifax)

When I was in Halifax for a day, I had to have seafood by the pier, so I stopped by Salty’s. The restaurant is a bit weird because it has a formal upstairs section with a different menu and a more casual downstairs. We opted for the lower floor because it didn’t break the bank (in comparison).

I had to start with fresh oysters. They were a bit more expensive than in New Brunswick, but totally worth it.

I had to get the basic boiled lobster with butter. For the price, it was smaller than the one at Paturel, but it was fresh and succulent.

I paired the food with a tasty caesar. I enjoyed my food but I think this place was a bit high-priced, but understandable since it was a touristy area.

When I was on the East Coast, my friends and I took a day trip to New Brunswick. One of our first stops was Africville, a community that was originally settled by Black Nova Scotians, who were evicted so that the area could be developed. In 2011, the Africville Church (of 1849) was reconstructed as part of a government apology in 2010.

Trailers of protesters were still seen at a distance on the property.

Afterward, we stopped by the Halifax Public gardens which was full of beautiful flowers:



We also visited the Halifax Citadel, which works with this year’s free Parks Canada pass. There was only 30 minutes before closing so we went through all the rooms and museums quickly:














Then I took a walk by the waterfront:
and saw Theodore the tugboat!




Halifax is a beautiful city, and I hope to be able to come back and explore some more soon.
