This is the most photographed lighthouse in the world, and I can see why – it has such charm and character. Today we woke up and wanted to beat the masses to Peggy’s Cove, and while we did that, there was more people there than I would have wanted. I had an idea late last night where I thought “I am going to wake up and get there for sun rise!”, but that thought was good for about 15 seconds when then I thought “Ya, I will sleep instead.” Now that I am posting this, I have that photographers ache that says “Why, oh why did you choose sleep? Photography is all about the commitment, planning, and sacrifice.”, but you know what, I had a good sleep.
Now, what I was not expecting was the small community that Peggy’s Cove is in. There are a few houses, and a good number of true fishing boots anchored up. There was some activity around where guys were getting things ready and a good number of lobster traps, ropes and other fishing gear around. It was really picturesque.
After our little adventure with Peggy, we took our drive to Halifax where we are spending the next few nights.
