Day 14: Peggys Cove

We were stuck in our tent the whole morning as it was raining heavily. Even if we went out, we would not be able to see all those scenic places. We ended up grilling all the meat which we bought yesterday to freeze them. We totally love this new tent with the canopy extension… can turn it into a lil' kitchen space during rainy days.. heh!

We also enjoyed online streaming Netflix movie using iPad and Sarah's iPod speaker. We used up 400MB for one movie, not bad huh? Ohh… we subscribed to 5GB 3G when we first arrived Canada; that's to be spent for this road trip.

When the rain stopped in the afternoon, we headed to Peggys Cove, about 40-minute drive from our campground.

From the review, it's one of the must-visit places in Nova Scotia.

It's a small fishing village with pretty landscape.

It would be more beautiful with clear blue sky, but the fog was real bad today :(

Check out the sign up there… this small lane is called Lobster Ln.

A very small lane :P

A cute lil' village!

We drove up to the famous Peggys Point Lighthouse. Have we seen enough lighthouses in Michigan? Hah!

Sarah noticed the lighthouse looks the same around here… the classic red and white, eh?

Please be careful kids … and D too!

Despite the heavy fog, we still enjoyed the scenery.

The lighthouse beckons the eastern entrance of St. Margarets Bay.

The landscape around it makes this lighthouse is one of the most-photographed structures in Atlantic Canada.

The black rocks that the tourists must avoid.. they are very slippery.

It was fun to watch big waves hitting the rocks.

Farhan suddenly popped out from the rock!

I had to return to the car so that Sarah could come out with my jacket since she forgot to bring hers.

A favorite place for artists!

Teasing his sister, as always :P

One last picture since D started to shiver :P

This cold day did not permit us to spend much time here.

Oh my… I could not resist good coffee when I saw this! That was a good latte :)

Farhan was reading about the wildlife in this part of the ocean.

It was time to go!

Their main source of income for this small community is from fishery, primarily lobsters.

A beautiful museum which is not far from the lighthouse. I'm sure if we stopped here, we would be able to tell the story of Peggy. So many versions we read from the pamphlets!

The romantic and dramatic version is… a long long time ago, a ship was wrecked near the lighthouse point, everyone on board was lost except a woman, who was rescued by the people on the shore, and married one of them. Her name was Margaret, short-formed Peggy.

We headed back to Sackville to look for Subway as we wanted to try its lobster sub. It's seasonal, just like McD.

We definitely prefer this than McD's lobster sandwich :)

Earlier on, we enjoyed our lunch in the tent, eating rice with this beef rendang. Yum!
