day three: cheers!

Today was a pretty low-key day. We did some shopping, some strolling and more eating. I returned to Loop (from Day 1) and purchased some wool to knit a couple of scarves for Christmas presents. It really is a great little shop.

Definitely one of the other highlights of the day was the trip to the Alexander Keith's Brewery and tour. Okay, so the sampling at the end of the tour was truly the highlight ;-) The brewery is conveniently located right near our hotel, just a short walk down the hill. If you are in the area, I would recommend the tour. It's a bit overly dramatic, but okay and the sampling at the end is very tasty.

Did you know there is such a thing as Keith's Light? Apparently you can only get it in Nova Scotia, because Labatt doesn't want it to compete with their #1 light beer, Bud Light. Personally, I never buy or drink Bud Light, but I would buy Keith's Light. In fact, I will be bringing some home in my suitcase (too bad the carry-on limit is 1L of liquids).

Please raise your glass to Mr. Alexander Keith...

Tomorrow we are hoping for an early start as we head off to explore the South Shore. Keep you fingers crossed for a beautiful day for great photos ;-)
