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.
