Good morning Chester,
It is a beautiful sunny morning, and we are off along the coast again.
Our first stop on the tour was Lunnenburg, a wonderful town, that has been and
is till working on restoring all of its historical buildings to its original
appearance as it was back in the late 1700's.
Amazing, almost like walking through a movie set, but yet all the people were
going about their regular daily routines.
From there it was off to Mahone's Bay. We stopped here for a small tour through
town and continued on to our destination , Peggy, s cove.
Peggy's Cove where the sea shore has been molded into smooth flowing mounds of
limestone,with a lighthouse standing tall amongst it all.
Many artists from all around the coastal region come here. To try and recapture
the beauty of the cove on canvas.
Peggy's Cove, Cooper thought it was named after a women, but actually the story
goes like this.
Margret, was a young women who had been ship wrecked in the area.
She had been rescued by some of the local fisherman.
Margret ended up falling in love with one of the men that rescued her.
The man that she fell in love with had the nick name, Peggy.
So there you have a little lesson on Peggy's Cove.
It is so peaceful here that we have decided to stay the night over looking the
cove over the ocean, with the sun setting and the full moon rising, everything
seems to be all in order and it is time to reflect.
It's a dogs life.....
