Artist's Description

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.)
