CIty Bound : Cole Harbour to Halifax
This morning began bright and early with an act of generosity and kindness from Dwight, who offered to drive us back to the trailhead where we left off yesterday so we could finish the last 12 km of trail in to Halifax. We shared trail stories on the way, and left with wishes for a 'Buen Camino' for him as he heads off with family and friends to begin the 800 km Camino Frances in Spain . The happy memories of our hike there, and the people we met along the way are still strong for us, and will remain so. The last kilometers of our hike in Nova Scotia along the Shearwater Flyer Trail felt like they flew by. The trail was shady, forested, and beautiful, and we were very pleased to see many people out jogging, bicycling, and walking it. As we approached the outskirts of Dartmouth we got a glimpse of the industry that powers the economy in Dartmouth and Halifax. First we walked past a CN Rail yard full of brand new cars waiting to be shipped away.
