The first cruise ship came into Halifax Harbour today. A funny place to go for a Spring holiday. It is a few degrees above freezing (positively balmy!) and there is only a small dump of snow flurries each day, yet still large drifts of snow are on the ground. (Most of the people I know are heading south. I’d be on the next plane to sunny California if I could—school and exhibition commitments keep me here.)

The tourists took it well, according to the radio interviews. People laughed, said it is an interesting place. I like that. I like it here even with our lack of what I would call Spring.

One hundred twenty cruise ships are expected from now into November. Busy harbour.
