Almost every year, someone gets drowned at Peggy’s Cove, Nova Scotia, because of ignoring the many warning signs to stay away from the edges of the rocks and cliffs. The Atlantic storms drive water and seaweed far up on the rocks, making them very slippery at any time, but especially when wet. Yet people will dare to get to the edge for that special picture. I know, I do it too, but I’ve been coming there for 50 years and I pay attention! I followed these folks around and they were mostly very careful, but a sudden big wave sent them running for higher ground.If they had stayed down in that gulley between the granite rocks, the wave and the undertow could easily have pulled them in, and once in, there’s little chance of getting out.
