Peggy’s Cove, Nova Scotia
Peggy’s Cove is a small fishing village just about 40 kms (26 miles) from Halifax.
Its inhabitants still fish for lobster, and the community maintains a rustic undeveloped appearance.
Today, Peggy’s Cove is a major tourist attraction. When we arrived there at around 2 pm, the place was already crowded with tourists.
The big attraction there is the Peggy’s Point Lighthouse. It was built in 1915. The rock formations around the lighthouse are a photographers dream.
We were there the first week of October, as it was not as busy as peak summer. Having said that it was still very busy with bus tours. The lighthouse, the restaurant, and shops were packed with people. We went by these busy spots and took time to walk around this charming village and enjoy very much of the beautiful scenery.
The rocks are unusual. Our guide told us they are “glacial erratics” and we could see the grooves on them from being dragged by the glacier.
You can explore the rocks, but there’s no real path, so be prepared to walk on uneven rocks.
This is how I imagine the lighthouse would be like under the blue sky. Photo was processed through the Photoshop.
