Some 50 km southwest of Halifax, the small village of Peggy's Cove is famous mostly for its picturesque lighthouse. Nova Scotia and the maritimes in general have hundreds and hundreds of lighthouses. Most of them have their own special charm. But as for meeting the bill as "a maritimes lighthouse", there's no better representative than the gleaming whitewashed lighthouse with the fire-engine red cupola at Peggy's Cove.
If there have been ten million photos taken of this lighthouse, please consider the three or four on my short little page to be 10,000,001 - 10,000,004. :)
The lighthouse itself actually houses a small Canada Post station on its first floor.
It's said that 750,000 visitors a year come to Peggy's Cove. Here are two of the prettiest.
And here is my sweet Sara with her old man. :)
- Pros:It is what it is, and it's what you expect to see.
- Cons:A few thousand other people will be seeing it with you.
- In a nutshell:A little town and lighthouse that still manages to remain charming despite 750,000 visitors a year.
