Yesterday, we left Halifax and drove to Lunenburg. On the way, we detoured to Peggy’s Cove and its lighthouse, purportedly one of the most photographed sites in Nova Scotia. You can see why it has that reputation:
We walked out on the rocks where the signs say you’re not supposed to go and I turned around to take this picture…
…and this one of the nearby restaurant where we had lunch.
Then we watched the waves come in.
Peggy’s Cove is a working fishing village, as well as a tourist destination. Here’s the cove.
A local artist chiseled this relief into a giant granite boulder in his backyard. Pretty amazing.
It looks like the weather is going to clear up this afternoon and we’re looking forward to getting out and about here in Lunenburg.
