I may get a bit of flak for saying this, but the best part of the vacation is coming up. We woke for a complimentary hot breakfast at the Liverpool Best Western, packed our bags, and loaded them into the Sedona. Today is a sunny day … a great day to explore around town.
Alan and myself went off in search of two specific geocaches. We located and logged our finds before rejoining the “three sisters.” Here are a couple of photos around Liverpool, NS.
After checking out the tourist information, local museums, and the area’s lighthouse, we gathered our thoughts, and a few mementos at the gift shop and coffee shop. Realizing the drive back to Halifax for our 1:00 PM appoint-ment was not going to happen … and after thinking about cancelling … Esme called the Segway/Halifax tour master and rescheduled. The new appointment allowed us ample time to drive to Halifax, park the KIA, and take-in the training.
Yes! This for me was the BEST part on the whole trip. As none-of-us had ever been on a Segway before this day; and because the training was provided as part of our uptown tour of Halifax package; any one, any two, or any number of individuals could say, “I can’t do this!” and it would cost them nothing at this point. The owner/trainer of the Segway/Halifax business wanted every person to be completely comfortable, either Ah or Nah … with the decision to “ride the wheels.” I AM SO PROUD TO SAY THAT EVERYONE COMPLETED THE INITIAL TRAINING AND AGREED TO GO-FOR-IT. (Just as a side note: Neither my wife Caryl, or Alan’s wife Olly has ever driven a car.)
With one instructor leading the charge, and another bringing up the rear, we toured around the boardwalk, then headed-out to explore uptown Halifax. We turned an lot of heads and created a bunch of curiosity as we sped up the sidewalk, zipped across crosswalks, and maneuvered around the streets.
