I like rusty spoons.
I can't believe the pit is gone! I loved going every couple months to see what great artwork was up there and take some pictures. I even took visitors from out-of town there...it's a nice detour when heading to the waterfront.
tac: I'm sorry, I can't even focus on reading your comment because the 0's (zeros) in place of O's are so distracting! Get that O key fixed!
1. The ocean. And I don't even surf/swim/sail! It's just nice to see it when you're walking about. I definitely missed it when I lived inland for a little while.
2. The weather (sometimes). Sometimes we have beautiful sunny days with nice blue sky, which is perfect for going to one of the many parks in our city, the beach, or further out to places like the valley. At times, I am even amazed by the fog. It can get so thick you can't see the building across the road. But then later on that day, it's completely clear. My bf (a Brit) was also amazed by our weather.
3. I actually have a job! In my field! In Halifax! My hometown! It's possible, people!
1. The transit system. It's difficult to go anywhere outside of downtown in a reasonable amount of time without a car.
2. Everything is slow to change. The people in charge are slow to get anything done, whether it's approving new buildings downtown, or restructuring our transit system. I wish we would have a mayor with a real vision and would just have the balls to DO something already (and do it right).
3. Power outages. We get them too frequently, especially during snow storms, but sometimes for no weather-related reason at all. I don't know why we don't just bury all the power lines underground.
All that said though, I plan on moving to England next year. We can trade places! :)
Mauger's Beach was pretty spotless when I went (July 11th). I thought that maybe the 'floatables' just didn't go down that far, but I guess the Friend's of McNabs just did a really good job of cleaning it up.
I recommend going there by McNabs Island Ferry. Just call in to arrange a time and he'll take you from Fisherman's Cove (you can take the #60 bus) to the Island, and back. He also explains all the highlights on the island and provides you a map.
Mmm, I love their green curry, and their mixed vegetable dish.
I've never had any problems with the service; the servers have always been very nice and efficient. Also, every time I go there, I've been given chopsticks but every other table seems to get forks by default. *shrugs* I guess I just look like I know how to use chopsticks.
