Peggy's Cove, Nova Scotia

Peggy's Cove is a small fishing village located approximately 45 minutes' drive northeast of Halifax. It is very popular with the tourists.

Rock carvings, honoring local fishermen.

The small, protected harbor.

Peggy's Cove Lighthouse. It is a temptation to climb on the boulders. Many have died or been seriously injured trying to climb the slippery, wet rocks. A Scotsman stands nearby playing the bagpipes (not pictured). Those tourists of Scottish heritage really enjoyed the music.

The Seagulls were quite friendly. These two were about 3 feet from me when I took this photo.

Enjoying reading your travels, I just have to clarify..
The "Scotsman" playing the pipes would in all likelihood be a native Nova Scotian, no doubt a student working his summer job.

Thanks for clarifying this. I have met so many Nova Scotians with Scottish heritage. (Slip of the tongue!)
