The Floatation Centre, Halifax, NS

Sister Sarah and I did floats this afternoon at The Floatation Centre in Halifax. I’ve done them for a few years (I find them relaxing) and this was her first one.  It was a nice restful spot and the staff was kind and caring.

A 75 minute float in 11 inches of water with 1,000 pounds of salt! 

They gave us some stickers when we left.
