A week of waterfronts

After yesterday’s lunch time walk along a very hot Dartmouth waterfront, I’ve accumulated nearly half a dozen urban-coastal views in about a week’s time.  Different oceans, different surfaces underfoot, obviously different views, and different sets of walking companions.  For the hottest of days, asphalt is not recommended as a walking surface; if today’s heat is as intense, I plan to cross to Halifax and use the boardwalk.

Here are some of the waterfronts I’ve seen and walked across the past week or so:
