I usually have a PLAN
Wednesday we walked out the door thinking we had a PLAN
Off to the Art Gallery.....we never made it!
There was brunch in Spring Garden and a stroll down the street....
|Love the colours of Halifax and the Maritimes!|
There were tree trolls to discover...
|On the constant search for tree trolls and ogres this guy was our favourite!|
and PLACES we've never seen! Woozles: A PLACE for and about children!
|If visiting Halifax or you live here but never have been to Woozles, you really must check it out. The staff is friendly, there are toys and books....and books...and books for any age. Curl up in the chair and take a PEEK through their PAGES!|
What is that music coming from the library? Let's take a detour...
Is that PIPERS that we see?!
|The Tatoo is in town and around the city, bands are performing for free for the public to see. After we were entertained....|
|they assembled for their PARADE down the street for their next PERFORMANCE!|
There was a stop at Strange Adventures (our favourite comic book store)....
We picked up dad and drove by the PIER.
|PIER 21....a great place to visit!|
If you are lucky you may see a wee boat at the PORT!
We threw out the PLAN
We headed out the door believing anything would do (especially if we finally made it to the Art Gallery!)
We had a PICNIC in the PARK next to the POND...
|The Pond at POINT PLEASANT PARK. |
If we had stayed, we could have enjoyed the PLAY
(If you haven't checked out Shakespeare By the Sea, you really should!)
We decided to walk to the Gallery by walking through the Halifax SeaPORT (wow, was it hot!)
|By this point it felt like the "End of the Line"! There was zero shade down here. Grateful we had water!|
We discovered a tunnel that gave us some shelter!
(It was like a mini art gallery inside...love graffiti!)
We made our way down Barrington, then what did we see....
PEOPLE PAINTING in the PARK!!!
We wandered over to see what they were doing...
|The Art Bikers are a group of 6 that take art to various locations in the HRM. Their goal...to bring art to the public in a fun and entertaining way. Their programs are FREE. Check out their blog (I linked it there for you) or check them out and Follow them on Facebook . Find out where they are and what they are up to on their calendar or status updates!|
They were amazing and lots of fun to create with and chat with (and amazing to find someone in the group from Peterborough with connections to Campbellford and who knew where Warkworth is....miracle of miracles. It was nice to chat with someone about Northumberland County and barn silos! lol)
We were invited to join them so the girls sat down ready to draw and to PAINT!
Their goal for the day was making PHOTO-op Stand-ins.
They needed two arms so the girls went to work!
