A Special Gift from Nova Scotia!
If you ever visit Nova Scotia, there is at least one thing that you HAVE to do. You have to go to the lighthouse at Peggy's Cove. The granite rocks at Peggy's Cove are a wonder of nature. The water is deep and during a storm the waves are known to climb higher than the top of the lighthouse.
It can be a very dangerous place to visit. You don't turn your back on the waves and you don't walk on the wet rocks. People have been swept off the rocks and never seen again. If you respect the posted warning signs you will have a safe and enjoyable visit. Visitors to Nova Scotia often remark that Peggy's Cove was a highlight of their trip.
While at the lighthouse site many people visit the extensive gift shop, which features wonderful local products. The on site restaurant is a great place to stop and enjoy very tasty homestyle cooking.
In addition to the appeal provided by the lighthouse, Peggy's Cove is well known as a fishing village. You can stroll along the wharf, see the fishing boats and chat with local lobster fishermen.
For a virtual visit to Peggys Cove, Nova Scotia here is my gift to you. It is dedicated to my friend and fellow blogger, Richard Yates, who is breaking blogging records. He has not been to Nova Scotia. Perhaps he will come, someday.
