Canada Cruise 2010: Halifax, Nova Scotia, Citadel
Our first stop on our Double Decker Bus tour was the Citadel in Halifax. We wanted to go their first so that we could see the changing of the guard, and the firing of the signal cannons. On this page I added a coin that we bought at the Citadel souvenir shop as well as an aerial view postcard of the Citadel to help give perspective to the size of the fortress. The coat of arms that is on the right hand page I cut by hand from a photograph that I took of the entrance sign to the Army Museum on site at the Citadel. I also affixed a map of the Citadel to the outside of the plastic page protector so that it could be opened and viewed.
This is the second spread dedicated to the Citadel. My son really enjoyed our time there and wanted me to take all kinds of pictures. You can see on the right hand page some of the fun ones that we had with the cannons. You will also notice that I saved our red sticker “tickets” to the Citadel on this page. If you look at the bottom right hand picture on the left hand page you will see my son with the sticker on his shirt.
The embellishments on this page were cut using my Cricut machine. I kept this page fairly simple as I wanted the pictures to be the focus of this page.
