365 Canadian Sights | Day 316: Fisherman’s Cove

The Maritime’s roots in fishing and the ocean have been kept alive in this little community. Restored in the min-90s to a traditional (but cared for) state, Fisherman’s Cove is a little piece of Halifax’s heritage, with a boardwalk, docks and shops hanging on to the rocks and ever-changing tide. The structures on pilings and… Read More 365 Canadian Sights | Day 316: Fisherman’s Cove
