Dartmouth afternoon


This is Eastern Passage, one of Halifax's best kept secrets. Fifteen minutes from downtown Halifax, across the bridge and along Dartmouth's harbour. This is looking across to Lawlors Island, next to McNab's Island. The smell of the wild roses was divine. There is a quaint development called Fisherman's Cove here with working fishing boats and whale watching, small shops and the home of maybe Nova Scotia's best fish n chips. Well....certainly a contender:) They are working on getting home cut fries. My two friends and I really enjoyed our meal, sitting outside on the deck in the warm June sunshine.

We also shared a Greek salad to balance it out. This one had mozzerella in it too.

After lunch one friend had a quiet moment while we took a stroll along the boardwalk trail to stretch out our legs, not to mention tummys!

Thanks for the trip down memory lane. I love the little area in Eastern Passage, and I can almost taste the fish and chips. A must have for me at least once a month!

Your pictures are incredible and the food looks so yummy. When I looked at your pics, I felt like I am there. What a beautiful place. I'm way over on the other side of the country, British Columbia. One day I will get back east. I have lots of newfie friends and my sister is married to a Nova Scotian.

Sat on that same deck with a Rickards Red and a huge plate of mussels myself last Thursday, then went on to Lawrencetown for a stroll on the beach.

I was searching for photography ecourse and I came across your blog and information. I am about to sign up the price is right and best of all you are Canadian. I'm from Sask originally now reside in Calgary but my husband is from Dartmouth so this look at Eastern Passage was all too familiar ..... we always make a stop for these fish n'chips when we are back at his home.

The boardwalk at Fisherman's Cove is nice. If you're lucky sometimes you can see deer across the 'Eastern Passage' on Lawlor's Island.

Wharf Wraps isn't as cozy as it used to be. Its quirky decor and wonderful service were both original and endearing but haven't been the same since they became more popular.
