We’d both seen Peggy’s Cove in books and on postcards and we wanted to see it for ourselves, so we set out from Halifax early on a drizzly Saturday morning. It was a beautiful drive, with lots of fishing villages and forest to look at along the way.
Peggy’s Point was where Sean and I both saw the Atlantic Ocean up close and personal for the first time. It was one of those landmark moments that we were able to share and will always remember. It was the furthest East that either of us had ever been.
A short drive took us to Peggy’s Cove – an iconic maritime seaside village.
Even on a grey day, it’s every bit as beautiful as it is on postcards.
These were the classic pictures I wanted to get.
There’s a fair bit of quirkiness about the village too, though.
And of course, Peggy’s Cove wouldn’t be complete without the fishing boats.
