More Peggy’s

As I mentioned in my last post, I made my husband stand around while I took many photos of the same thing in Peggy’s Cove. Here are some more shots I would like to share:

More lobster traps of course! As well as lighthouse views in B&W:

I liked the way the net was draped over the side of this boat. In colour the net is green, but I find it accents the boat much nicer in B&W:

That’s it for my views of Peggy’s Cove. Next stop, Chéticamp!

Peggy’s Cove

Like many travelers in Nova Scotia, we made sure to stop in Peggy’s Cove. It is a very homey village where I will be sure to visit again!

We parked our car at the Traveler’s Centre and walked into the town. As we made our way along the side of the road I couldn’t help but stop and take pictures of everything! Here is where I have to admit I have a great husband who continues to support me even though he does not share my love of photography. I should clarify here that he loves my photographs, but doesn’t enjoy standing around while I spend 10 minutes taking 30 pictures of the same thing! Here is one example:

After my obsession with lobster traps we continued to make our way toward the famous lighthouse; stopping to take more pictures. . .

. . . and visiting shops along the way.

I fancy this one in B&W and in colour!

We finally made it to Peggy’s Point Lighthouse:

When we go back to Nova Scotia (in the far distant future) I would like to spend a few days just in Peggy’s Cove so that I can take more photographs at different points of the day therefore trying different lighting and angles. In these shots I am trying to avoid the other hundreds of people who are also enjoying this sight with me.

Before we left for the day we made sure to stop by Dee Dee’s Ice Cream Shop. We could smell the scent of freshly made waffle cones from the street! I enjoyed some maple walnut ice cream which reminds me of my late opa. My husband had a local berry flavour. Both were delicious! It was nice to sit on a nearby bench and enjoy our ice cream amongst the beautiful scenery.

Peggy’s Cove is a must-see for any traveler! I look forward to sharing more pictures in my next post!
