July 1, 2019,   Sydney, Nova Scotia      171/183

Merrilynne and I spent a few hours walking along the picturesque seafront boardwalk taking in the scenes and proud history of  many mariners.  A nice lady's sweater found its way from a hanger on shore to our cabin!

There is something special about being back in your own country.  A free wheeling conversation broke out between us and several local Nova Scotians who were controlling security for ship boarding.  We would have been set for a fun evening if our ship hadn't been set to sail.

Oceania put on a Canada Party in the Horizon Lounge, with excellent 'beaver' muffins and 'beaver tails' and music by Canadian entertainers!

Sydney played an important roll as a staging point for many convoys destined to England
