Peggy’s Cove truly a unique place

By LARRY VAUGHT

One part of any Princess Cruise that I really enjoy is the shore excursions that you have an option to visit and today I got my first — and hopefully not last — look at Peggy’s Cove, a quaint fishing village in Nova Scotia outside of Halifax that was founded in 1811.

It’s on the eastern shore of St. Margaret’s Bay and includes Peggy’s Point Lighthouse that was built in 1868.

The scenery was magnificent and getting to climb on the huge rocks along the shore was fun even for this old guy. So was eating a lobster roll from a food truck at 9 a.m. It was even better seeing the new lobster traps compared to the older ones and listening to several fishermen getting their boats ready to resume going after lobster in November.

Hopefully these pictures can give you just a small feel for how special this community is.

  1. Cruising is so much fun and Peggy’s Cove looks like a nice spot.
    Our go-to cruise line down here in Florida is Royal Caribbean. My wife and I depart for Belize on Dec. 14th for a 10 day Western Caribbean Christmas Cruise. We’re stopping off in Cozumel on the way and will be visiting Mayan ruins in Mexico, Belize, and Honduras.

  2. Looks really nice. My wife and I love going to places we have never been before. Looks like a great place to visit. Have fun, and safe travels. Go CATS!!
