Halifax, NS – Oct 22, 2011

58 years later, almost to the week, I arrived back at Pier 21 by ship. Last time it was De Groote Beer from Rotterdam, this time the MS Maasdam. Both are Holland America Line managed (I will try to get cruise day credits for those 2 weeks in 1953 Smile)

Lovely weather, we walked all over the harbour area and a bit up town. And we had a fabulous fish lunch of course.
