I live in the Albany, NY, area, not Halifax. But my wife and I are considering a motoring vacation at the end of the summer through Nova Scotia. Our silk-green MINI is on the Traviata right this moment, so we hope to have it in a couple of weeks. We'll probably take vacation the first two weeks of September and drive up the Maine coast, perhaps take the ferry, then visit Halifax and spin up around Cape Breton before returning home via Quebec. Hopefully the weather would still be OK then. We spent a wonderful couple of weeks in Nova Scotia in the mid-1980s and have been wanting to return ever since. Seeing it in a MINI would be a great way.
