One of the most photographed corners of the Maritimes and has been synonymous with Nova Scotia is of course Peggy's Cove. Of course I expected to see the pristine sheltered cove with weathered shanties and fishing boats reflected in peaceful waters, but, what I didn't know was how beautiful the surroundings of this famous photo would be. It is hard to imagine the geological shifts that must have happened ages ago to create a moonscape of boulders that would have jostled for position over a huge expanse of seashore. It was mind boggling how such a tiny community could be inundated with thousands of tourists in one day to wonder at it's
beauty. To me the scene was breath taking.

They say a picture is worth a thousand words but, I also would say that a picture does not represent an eyeful!

Wally and Trudy.... Your trip is just the greatest... Wish we were there with you...... so much to see and do and I'm sure that sometimes the days are not long enough! On Saturday we leave for Bend... stopping for two nights before we get there and it will be so good to relax since we have been moving old concrete from behind the garage so we can finish the patio. We are sooooo grateful that Andy was here to use the jackhammer. We love your photos!!!!!!!!!!!! d and s
