Peggy’s Cove, Nova Scotia, Canada, a tiny world-famous historic fishing village about 30 miles from Halifax city, regular population about 50. But one of the most visited places in all of Canada, with thousands coming every year to see what life is like on the shores of the wild Atlantic Ocean, among the huge slabs of granite that were exposed and scoured by the glaciers of the last Ice Age about 10,000 years ago. These boats were hauled up, probably for maintenance, before the Fall fishing season began.

    I was there in 2003 Jann, I wonder if I got this old boat in photo. I didn’t have digital then, I would have to look at my photos. Great colors – it’s such a beautiful little village

  • That boat has been there for many years, sometimes in the water and sometimes hauled up. It’s perfectly seaworthy as far as I know, so you probably saw it. Yes, it’s an adorable place..George has been going there for over 50 years and it was one of the first places he took me to on our first trip together in 2005. I just love it!

    Excellent picture, Jann! ‘Miss Peggy’s Cove’ is such a typical Nova Scotia boat!

  • You’ve got that right,David! Tough as nails and just keeps on going. I’ve got some of her in the water!
