If you’re visiting Nova Scotia – then don’t miss a trip to Peggy’s Cove, just 44 kilometres away from downtown Halifax.

There’s not much to Peggy’s Cove – a church, a handful of homes, a gallery or two, a restaurant and one B&B – with an incredible view and wonderful hospitality too I might add. You don’t need long for a visit – perhaps a few hours – more if you’re into photography or you want to enjoy a long leisurely meal at the restaurant. But you could easily spend a day or two in the area – especially if you want to poke your nose into galleries, hike on the rocks, check out a myriad of seafood selling restaurants and I mean who doesn’t want to linger over a lobster club sandwich for lunch or dinner. And there’s some excellent kayaking too – just 10 minutes away out of East Dover – but more about that later this week.

Here’s a look at Peggy’s Cove – with most shots taken between 7 pm – 9:30 pm on one of the first non-rainy days in a very long time.
