Here is the second part of my Peggy’s Cove post. These were taken the next morning when the sky cleared up and it wasn’t typical Nova Scotia weather, which is rain and gloomy clouds.
It was difficult to get these pictures of the famous lighthouse without any one in them because when its nicer out, more people tend to lead their little caves. I am very happy I went here and toured around Nova Scotia in May instead of during the tourist season, which starts mid-june. I have heard from almost all tourist places that peggy’s Cove is literally jam packed with people during the summer. Therefore, my suggestion to you, is that if you want to visit, go during the fall, winter or spring… just not in the summer!
*Warning: Injury and death have rewarded careless sight seers here. The ocean and rocks are treacherous, savour the sea from a distance*
Legit take note of this. You may think those black rocks (as they call them) are not slippery, but they are. As well, a wave may not look large but when it hits you, you’ll reconsider that thought. Just be cautious and admire from a far…and away from ledges!
That large building is the gift shop as well as a restaurant. While you eat you have a beautiful view of all the surrounding water and rocks, definitely worth a visit.
Although if you do go in, my advice is do not buy their salt water taffy. For some reason it tastes funny….
Looking out into the distance. It was such a beautiful day… well until about mid afternoon when it started to rain again! Oh Nova Scotia weather, how I will not miss you.
This is a lobster fisherman throwing a cage out. When you look off into the water at Peggy’s Cove, there are many orangy-red buoys that you can see and they are all lobster traps. It is actually quite amazing and impressive to watch these boats drive around and pull the cages up and put them back down. Let me just say, they are very good at keeping track of what they have already checked!
If you did not know, lobster season is not in the summer as most would think. It is actually late fall to the spring. If you are interested in the lobster in Nova Scotia here is a link.
