The house hunting trip was a success. We found a place about a 1/2 hour commute outside of Halifax. What attracted us to the place was the quietness. We couldn't hear any traffic noise. The birds were chirping. The sun was shining. The kid's high school is about a ten minute walk away. There's a lake, with a beach close by, just down the road, where I can kayak too. So that's a big bonus.
We found the home we wanted, and put together an offer the second day so we had some free time to enjoy some of the touristy things in the region like eating lobster, and visiting the Halifax fort. Peggy's Cove is only a 45 minute drive away from where we'll be living. We drove over there in the evening to take some pictures and walk around the famous lighthouse. The scenery was amazing. Inspiring. This place will give me some great writing ideas I'm sure.
