Peggy's Cove Lighthouse by Breanna Marshall

Peggy's Cove Lighthouse

Peggy's Cove itself is a village dating back to 1811. The residents there have relied on lobster fishing for much of their livelihood, but in recent years, much of their income now comes from tourists. People flock to the tiny village of 35 residents, to see the lighthouse (as well as the village's rustic, coastal appearance). The lighthouse itself is known to anyone from Nova Scotia; It's an iconic symbol of the province. It and the village are so iconic, that a resort in Thailand recently opened up with the theme of "Peggy's Cove"! The landscape of the area is also a good example of the glacial carving that happened across Nova Scotia some thousands of years ago. Peggy's Cove has even been protected, to preserve its natural, rugged beauty.
