Peggy's Cove is a tiny town, but the quintessential fishing village. What make it even more special is the solid rock it is built on and the lighthouse at the far end of the town. In fact, the town does not have a water or sewage system because of the granite being too hard to dig into. There is some land with a little soil on it that people used for growing vegetables, way back when.
It's a very pretty little town and would have even more photogenic if the sun had been out today. Also, I mistimed my visit as three cruise ships are in Halifax, so there were several busloads of people taking day trips from the ships.
This is the lighthouse, with tons of people walking all over the rock base. This rock is what underlies the entire town and much of the area. The visitor center has composting toilets, as do some of the homes. The others rely of septic systems and cisterns for water. Luckily, I take my own toilet and water system with me wherever I go, so I don't have to use public toilets. Nice.
It was hard getting pictures without a bunch of people standing in front of me taking pictures! About now is when it started sprinkling. I headed back to my parking spot at the visitor center and headed back to my campsite.
This is the view from my campsite. Not bad!
I had planned to head for Lunenburg, another scenic town, today, but considering that two pairs of my shoes and my jacket was soaking wet, I decided to wait until tomorrow when there is supposed to be a little sun. Hope so!!
