Peggy's Cove Lighthouse September 21, 2008

Let's go back to Peggy's Cove for a bit, shall we? A photo of the fishing village found in the cove, nestled in the rocky shore of the Atlantic was featured last week (Sept. 10th). The lighthouse shown here, is the famous Lighthouse at Peggy's Point and the only lighthouse in Canada where there is a working post office open within the base of the structure. Letters can be mailed and hand stamped with the famous cancellation stamp depicting the very lighthouse housing the post office. Passports too, can be stamped, and many of us gladly accepted proof that we had indeed made the trek to Nova Scotia.

The weather was a bit threatening, and we were forbidden to explore the coastline, due to the possibility of rogue waves. It all added to the mystic of this harbor town, with the glacier scoured shores. No wonder this is Nova Scotia's most visited attraction.
