Maritimes Tour Journal, day eleven: harbour and history.

The day began at Pier 21 and the Canadian Museum of Immigration, where many of our group thought of their parents or grandparents who arrived to Canada via this port. The Choir sang in the lobby at the Museum.

Lunch was the Halifax Seaport Market.

We visited the Art Gallery and saw an exhibit of Salzinnes Antiphonal – an illuminated choir book originating from the Cistercian Abbey of Salzinnes on the outskirts of Namur (present-day Belgium). It was made in 1554-1555, and can also be viewed online at Alamire Foundation.

We also enjoyed Maude Lewis’ work, including her little painted house. #gallery-7 { margin: auto; } #gallery-7 .gallery-item { float: left; margin-top: 10px; text-align: center; width: 50%; } #gallery-7 img { border: 2px solid #cfcfcf; } #gallery-7 .gallery-caption { margin-left: 0; } /* see gallery_shortcode() in wp-includes/media.php */

In the beautiful sunny evening we had a concert in a beautiful Victorian Gazebo for a crowd at The Halifax Public Gardens. #gallery-8 { margin: auto; } #gallery-8 .gallery-item { float: left; margin-top: 10px; text-align: center; width: 50%; } #gallery-8 img { border: 2px solid #cfcfcf; } #gallery-8 .gallery-caption { margin-left: 0; } /* see gallery_shortcode() in wp-includes/media.php */
