Nova Scotia Trip Day 5

Today is the only "stay put" day of the trip. The weather is in and out sun and rain. There was a slightly over a mile walk uphill to attend services at an ELCIC congregation in the morning followed by some time spent at the Halifax Citadel on the way back down 9and up and down again) the hill.

Later, there was a trip to the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic. The Acadia is "the only surviving ship to have served the Royal Canadian Navy during both world wars. [...] She received minor damage in the Halifax Explosion in 1917 while acting as a guard ship in Bedford Basin, making her the only vessel still afloat today to have survived the Halifax Explosion."

One floor above the room is an outdoor terrace and the stairway is right across the hall. I saw some good lighting and ran up to grad the shot of George's Island (not open to the public) with colorful buildings in the foreground and rain in the background.

Photos at the Citadel were made with the EOS M and EF-M 18-55mm lens, the Acadia with the EOS 70D and EF-S 24mm f.2.8 STM pancake lens and George's Island with the 5D Mark III and EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS II USM.
