Day 7 – Peggy’s Cove!

Today didn’t have a great start as I hurt my back by doing the “twist and bend” injury while picking up a pillow. Yes, a pillow! So I had a bit of a pinch in my lower back but I was not going to let this slow me down. Well, actually it did slow me down but didn’t stop me!

On the way to Peggy’s Cove we stopped a bunch of times when we saw picturesque scenery (which was often). We stopped for lunch at the Finer Diner. There was an arts festival that was going on this week (I had found information online and through the @visitnovascotia on twitter). People at the diner gave us a map and suggested a few places. Mike also found another camera at an antique store (another Brownie). We checked out several galleries on the way. We stopped at the Flight 111 Memorial.

Peggy’s Cove was, well… WOW! No wonder it is such a popular destination. We took so many photos. I realized that we had only moved about 30 feet from the car in the first 20 minutes. There will be photos. There were gift shops and galleries there too. We checked out a few but spent most of the time standing on the rocks up near the lighthouse. Again… WOW! Oh, an one cool thing that happened – a plane did a very close fly-by and both Mike and I grabbed our cameras. It was cool. Most of the blog pictures are from the iphone so I don’t have it in here. I could have spent days there! We drove along the shore as we headed to our next destination – Manitoba Hal’s house in Shelburne. We ended up stopping again at the Finer Diner for supper. It is quite fine – the food delicious and the staff so friendly. I recommend it.
Once we arrived at Hal’s he took us on a quick night-time tour of the harbour front and the Sandy Point Lighthouse. Mike took a long exposure of the lighthouse that turned out really nice.
