Sunday adventure with Sybil & Wendy – Part II, Peggy’s Cove

So to pick up where I left off in my last blog post, after hiking around Polly’s Cove, Sybil and I did some exploring around Peggy’s Cove. Of course, there’s the famous Peggy’s Cove lighthouse…

But there’s a whole lot more to see. Sybil pointed out this rock carving that I hadn’t noticed the other times I’d been to Peggy’s Cove.

The carving is by William DeGarthe and is a memorial to the fishermen of Peggy’s Cove.

Of course, being a fishing village, there are lots of lobster traps and fishing boats and fishing sheds…

Sybil and I were a bit obsessed with finding lighthouse reflections in the puddles. This is the best I could do.

Oh, and we weren’t really the only people at Peggy’s Cove, I just got creative with my picture-taking and managed to avoid getting most of the people in my shots :-)

Such a great day enjoying spectacular scenery with a great group of people. And thank you to Sybil and Wendy for being up for a last-minute adventure :-) To check out more pictures and learn more about the cool carvings at Peggy’s Cove, click here to go to Sybil’s blog.
