We stopped mid-day on our way from Halifax to Indian Cove to see the big draw for these parts…. the rural community of Peggy’s Cove. Tour buses filled the parking lot and the visitors seems like “ants on a hill” milling about the base of the lighthouse built in 1901. Tip – visit early in the morning or late afternoon, the crowds will be thinner and you can enjoy taking photographs, visiting the art galleries and not waiting in long queues to eat your fill of lobster and chowder. The owner of our little cottage is one of six artists at the “Hags on the Hill”gallery.
Returning at sunrise on a beautiful morning, we were able to take photographs unaccompanied by hordes of tourists. I can only imagine what the local think of the traffic…although grateful for the business….it is very congested….think of the 405 freeway in SoCal at rush hour.
