Local Colour

I love pictures that you have to look at and then look at again.
This is taken looking through the church window at Peggy's Cove. Inside, outside and me on the right:) It is a pretty, simple little building. Inside are kept cards and mementos of the terrible 1998 plane crash of flight 111. These teddy bears, flowers, personal items , were left on the rocks and no one had the heart to throw them away.

This looking southwest. Off to the right, out of sight is the lighthouse and to the left is more of the same. Those rocks are marvelous to roam and even on the coldest windiest days you can find a sheltered nook to hunker down in and watch the waves. It was a quiet day the day these were taken. Generally, after bracing the wind and salt spray, we head into the restaurant just up behind me, for warm gingerbread and tea or fish chowder depending on the time of day. Sometimes both:))

What I like to call "shack bling" ! Fishing buoys strung along a building to wait out the winter.

Shack bling? Hahaha! I love that!
Wow, what a gorgeous place. You can actually smell the fresh sea air. :)

Thank you so much for stopping by and leaving such lovely comments! Nova Scotia is on my life list of places to see. I traveled the entire Alaska Highway once and was awed, like you, by the mountains. (There are no mountains in Buffalo)

As well, your photos are gorgeous and your artwork utterly endearing. So happy to have found you!

I never tire of seeing photos of Peggy's Cove. It is such a beautful, peaceful place! We were lucky enough to visit it once and I had a good time exploring those rocks and had hot gingerbread at probably the same restaurant! I even sent a post card to myself from the lighthouse post office :-)

Hugs, Pat
