It is lovely and clean here. Although there wer only a few shops open, due to it being Sunday or late in the season maybe there were lots of people walking around enjoying the beautiful weather.

Do you really feel the way I Feel... Brought back lots of memories walking on the boardwalk. There was change since the last time I had been years ago & good things. Businesses had Developed and what looks like 18 Wheeler Storage Containers are the homes of a few merchants on the Halifax Boardwalk... Clothing stores; iCE Cream Bars... 2_3 Storage Containers put together form a bigger establishment ... it’s truly remarkable what LiFe does in certain events. ME MiCHEL J MAiLLET lives in Halifax NS Canada in 2001 and ME Met a nice person in Halifax. His name is James David Matthews & ME when ME had lunch with Jim Matthews in Halifax; he would take me to a certain iTALiAN place on the North end of Robie Street quiet place that was and hardly nobody there when we went and might be James Matthews arranged it to be like that. Maybe James felt me required peace and quiet once in a while. Can’t remember the name of that place. James knew the owner well enough to spark conversation. Me figures is one of James Matthews clients [ MJM Finances ] & James Matthews during lunches every once in a while took me to the harbour front to watch the cargo ships come into port... James said that helped him predict the volatility of the stock market & he found that coming or going to the harbour front was insight into the unknown. James was very intelligent. Me says was because me learnt in 2019 that James has passed away [ RiP 2017 August Homeside Sydney Mines Cape Breton Nova Scotia Canada ]

The boardwalk, depending on the time of day, can be a very busy place. This time of year most of the kiosks are closed. But that does not mean you can't still enjoy it. There is plenty of space, the kids play area is open. You can sit and watch the ferries as well as container ships, naval vessels, coast guard, on weekends in the summer, there are always boats on the go. There are hammocks on the waterfront, a great way to spend some time. There is always something to see. My favorite time is early morning, when the sun is coming up. It is peaceful, and the sun coming up, makes everything better.

The beautiful Waterfront Boardwalk is well into a significant expansion and renovation including new tourist, residential and commercial offerings. While not the longest or most extensive waterside complex in the world, the Halifax Boardwalk doesn't lack in eye candy or authentic nautical attractions. The wide expanses and generous seating areas provide plenty of space for everyone, especially in this new era of physical distancing obligations. There's no excuse for anyone to leave the area hungry, thirsty, or disappointed. Well done Halifax. Can't wait to return to experience more enhancements, sometime in 2021. [ Hopefully, without the need for a mask! ]
