|Roving fog banks in the NW Arm Anchorage|
|Halifax harbor from museum ship Acadia|
Halifax info: I anchored in the far end of the Northwest Arm in 20'. The whole arm is very crowded with moorings, but there is room to anchor carefully. Bottom is reputed tobe soft mud but I have not dragged yet in winds up to twenty knots ona 5:1 scope. There is also space to anchor by the Dingle. Dinghy access is either at the yacht club or at the small floating dock at the park. Tidal range is about two meters. There is a bus stop near the yacht club and at the park.
The next stop will be the Bras d'or lakes, a little over a hundred miles from Halifax. Sailing out on a clear day, i enjoyed seeing all that I missed during my middle of the night arrival. Took a good look at the other yacht club, the Royal Nova Scotia Yacht Squadron on the way. Although much closer to the ocean than Armdale, it has two shortcomings: without a Bicycle or car, no shopping is nearby and all the boats there were rolling in the swell working its way in.
