Halifax Harbour Front, Nova Scotia

Halifax is the capital city of  Nova Scotia. Its rich culture, music and architecture attracts thousands of tourists every year. The Halifax Waterfront Boardwalk is lovely whether it’s a bright sunny day or a misty rainy day.  Shops, restaurants, and historic buildings line the waterfront, and the area is crowded with a colourful mix of maritime traffic. It is said to be world’s longest boardwalk. An afternoon stroll along the boardwalk lets you forget all your worldly worries.

And on a cloudy day

哈利法克斯是新斯科舍省的省都。其豐富的文化,音樂,建築,每年吸引成千上萬的遊客。尤其是它的海濱步道, 很值得一看,無論是一個陽光明媚的晴天或是下著綿綿細語的陰天, 它都展示著不同的風味。一排排的商店,餐館和歷史建築駐立在港口邊。多姿多彩的船舶停靠港灣, 隨著海浪上下起伏著。據說這是世界上最長的Boardwalk (木橋步道)。到了傍晚,許多人會來這裡漫步,偷閒一下。

走累了, 來吃點冰淇淋, 買糖果 (店名Sugah)

理查看到這麼多他喜歡的巧克力看得都呆了

You must visit the Rum Runner on the Boardwalk. “All Rum Runners cakes use real rum or whiskey bottled at beautiful Glenora Distilleries on Cape Breton Island, making it a truly Nova Scotian product.” It’s soft and delicious cake is super addictive… but it could be the alcohol too😛
During the prohibition, women used to bootleg alcohol in the cakes and that’s where the these special Rum Runner Cakes come from.

還有旁邊的朗姆酒蛋糕店也很棒喔. 這是以前下禁酒令的時候婦女們研發出來的特製蛋糕. 加拿大東岸的水手們一直是冒著生命危險來謀生。尤其是在以前美國下禁酒令的時候, 許多漁船都會走私朗姆酒到南方供給美國社會大眾所需。當然成功闖關的船長們因此而賺了驚人的財富。朗姆酒蛋糕於是產生, 美味的蛋糕用味道豐富,甜美的朗姆酒製成。因為這巧妙的手段讓他們可以在當局的嚴厲的執法下把朗姆酒走私到美國。

理查是吃了以後說這蛋糕又軟又綿, 吃了會一口接一口 (還是其實是酒精作祟? XD)  不過它太特別了, 又是哈里法克斯當地的特產, 我們買了好幾盒回來送人, 蠻受好評的喔.
