Peggy's Cove Lighthouse by Nancy Richard

Located about 26 miles south of Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada, Peggy’s Cove lighthouse is one of the most photographed lighthouses in North America. Near the fishing village by the same name, it was purportedly named for a child, who survived a shipwreck at Halibut Rock nearby. Since she was too young to remember her name, she was named, Peggy by the family who adopted her.

The lighthouse was operated by the Canadian Coast Guard, but declared surplus in 2010, and then given time to be taken over by the province or a lighthouse heritage group. (Perhaps someone could let me know what has happened.)

I am deeply concerned about environment, wildlife, and animal welfare, feeling a strong commitment to leaving the planet in better shape for new generations. Therefore, I support a number of charities that reflect those interests.

I have a degree in English and Library Science, but if I had my life to live over, I would have loved to have been a photographer, writer, and/or National Park ranger.
