7Shots: Peggy’s Cove, Nova Scotia
Welcome to the 2nd edition of my 7Shots photography series, where I share another highlight of my 2015 road trip through Nova Scotia. Last summer we drove 3,700 km to explore this beautiful coastal province and Peggy’s Cove was definitely one of the highlights of the trip. Peggy’s Cove is a small rural community located on the eastern shore of St. Margaret’s Bay, less than an hour away from Halifax.
The lighthouse at Peggy’s Point is one of the most iconic places in Canada, and claims to be the most photographed lighthouse in Atlantic Canada (some say even in the world).
When you get there, make sure to plan enough time to walk around and enjoy the spectacular views of the lighthouse from the rocks.
Most visitors aren’t aware of the area on the other side of the parking, where you will find nice views on a small bay. Follow the little trails through the high grass to access this bay area, where you will find many pools of warm crystal clear water to bathe in or to explore the marine life. While there are always lots of visitors at the lighthouse throughout the day, we were glad to find this hidden place away from the crowds.
