I took some photos at Peggy's Cove on the south shore while we were there. I really think it must be one of the most photographed and painted places in Canada - certainly one of the most picturesque.
Here are a couple of the ones I took:
According to legend, Peggys` Cove was named after the only survivor of a schooner that ran aground and sank in 1800...a woman named Margret. Local folk called her `Peggy` and her home came to be known as Peggy`s Cove.
While at Peggy's Cove, we also visited the memorial to the victims of the Swiss air disaster. It is a beautiful, tastefully done memorial to those who perished: one solid stone split exactly down the centerand separated, both sides polished and engraved.
