We had a beautiful fall day while visiting Halifax, and headed off to Peggy's Cove. The drive there is scenic and relaxing, at least at this time of year in fall. The road wasn't busy and we pulled over a few times to take photos....More

Very nice lighthouse kept intact for the Tourists. The only other Item of note on the rocks is the Restaurant and gift shop. Is it worth it to go? Yup amazing by the ocean.

We had a clear day with little or no clouds and the site of Peggy's Cove was so beautiful. The rock formations are very interesting and the lighthouse is goregous.
