If you Google Peggy’s Cove you’ll be met with about 100 pictures of the famous lighthouse and it’s many moods.

The sea was not high so there was no danger the day we were there.

Nova Scotia / Peggy’s Cove …

the last time i saw her / gordon lightfoot

Upon request, I am Posting some more pics of our recent holiday in Nova Scotia trip …


I had no plans to go to Peggy’s Cove. I was completely focused on my upcoming sail on the Bluenose Schooner. Anything else that happened was just a bonus. But we had a few days on hand … and it was close by.

Peggy’s Cove

Peggy’s Cove was once a quiet little fishing village. Then somebody did a painting …

Probably this guy:


William E. deGarthe, Artist and resident of Peggy’s Cove, Nova Scotia

William E. deGarthe was pretty good:

On our way …
It was a foggy, overcast morning with no wind …
