Now I am beginning to realize why so many tourists from all over the world
come to a very tiny area along the south shore of Nova Scotia called Peggy's Cove. (click)
It is absolutely beautiful there. And is entirely made of granite rock in all shapes and sizes.
This is called The Whalesback
This was where we found ourselves early Sunday morning and were very happy we did.
Even though it is early May it was sunny and 'warmish' when we arrived.....
about a good hour from 'our' eastern shore.
One has a choice to either go to the village of Peggy's Cove
or to a couple of other vantage points.
We chose The Whalesback, one of the other locations
because of number of people that go to the quaint village ,
and also considering we had Sophie with us. She could run free.
This place is really unbelievable, no matter when you go. It is wild and unpredictable
most of the time and has a landscape from another planet.
The ocean was calm on Sunday and it was low tide so we could explore closer to the water.
Sophie was beyond herself and didn't know what to do first....so much to sniff and explore!
When I found this rock above I didn't know what to think.
Something from a distant civilization? A distant planet?
What do you think?
