June 27 – Peggy’s Cove

What does an East Coast girl living on the West Coast do when she comes home for a visit? Soaking in some East Coast experiences is a good start!

Stephanie came home for a visit, and we decided to take a day and go to Peggy’s Cove. I knew I had been there before, but all I remembered about the experience was having a picnic on the rocks, making grilled cheese sandwiches on the camp stove (for some reason, food memories stick with me). I asked on the drive, and Mom and Dad couldn’t remember exactly when that trip happened, just that Stephanie was very young at the time. So this was like a first visit for Stef & I.

I was not disappointed. It is beautiful there – and definitely a good spot for a picnic!

Mom did find the pictures from the trip I remembered, and she said Stef looked to be around 4 years old, which means I would have been 15. From the pictures it looks like it was a fun trip the first time around too!

This time, after seeing the lighthouse and exploring the rocks for a bit, we ate lunch in the restaurant. It would have been fun to wander around a bit and visit some of the little shops, but since we wanted to drive along the south shore to Lunenburg, we decided to be on our way.

    You were very close to my neighbourhood! Beautiful photos! I’m ashamed to say that I hardly get out there, even though it’s so close. I will get there this summer :-) #summerbucketlist

      It’s a bit of a drive from my parents’ place (Greenwood area), but it was worth it. You should definitely go! :)
