After a trip to Peggy’s Cove and to Lunenberg, Mary and I went down to the waterfront in Halifax to get my favorite ice cream, maple walnut, at Cow’s. There’s no other ice cream as good as this ice cream--- made in PEI, I believe.

We had booked tickets on the Haligonian III for a cruise in Halifax Harbor so that we would have a good view of the fireworks scheduled for 10:00 over the bridge to Dartmouth.
There’s a big celebration this weekend to celebrate Natal Day, and the fireworks are part of it.
At eleven upon returning to our car parked in the Murphy’s lot, I discovered I had lost my car keys. In retracing our steps, some of the places we had been were closed. And there didn't seem to be a general lost and found department on the waterfront. So no keys, and we were stuck downtown at midnight with my car locked in the parking lot and no way to get back to where we were staying for the night
We flagged a policeman in his car, and he was very helpful. He suggested we have the spare key which Dan had in Cape Breton, four hours away, sent down by bus. (Sunday and Monday, a holiday, the Chrysler dealers in town were closed.) the next day. He took us back in his squad car to Risley Hall on the DAL campus where we were staying.
I was mighty glad we were “picked up by the police”.
