More of the Coast

After a hot and sunny day when we were sightseeing in Halifax, the next morning we were greeted with fog and drizzling rain which increased steadily during the course of the morning.

We had decided to have a relaxing morning and then head out in the afternoon to visit Peggy’s Cove and other waterfront locations in the area.  This was all relatively close to where we were staying.

The iconic lighthouse was overrun by busloads of tourists but I managed this shot with the minimum of people in it.

Another oft seen image and it is not difficult to see why.

This is a working maritime community and the lobster pots bear witness.

The fog returned…….

Polly’s Cove is a little further on and as devoid of people as Peggy’s Cove is popular.  There is no signage, lighthouse or buildings.  Careful directions from a local meant that we found it or we would have been like everyone else and not taken a second look at the small, gravel area to pull off the road with a barely visible entrance to the track.

The track widens once you are away from the road.

It narrows to a point where it is barely visible in the lush summer growth.

Finally, we arrived at the cove.

The Nova Scotian coastline has so many moods and there will be more to come in future posts.
