Visually Inspiring Day Trips in Nova Scotia

Peggy's Cove, NS photo by Jacqueline Steudler July 31, 2012
Although I wouldn’t call myself a landscape painter I’m still very much inspired by the beauty of   Nova Scotia’s land and seascape. If you visit Nova Scotia you don’t want to miss Peggy’s Cove. Although it has been visited by many and millions of images have been taken by amateur and professional photographers, and the lighthouse, fisher boats, and village have been painted on canvas thousand of times, this seascape still fascinates me.

It is a place that speaks to me, the colours of the rocks, the people walking them, the lighthouse reflected in water puddles, the colours of the buoys, the fisher nets, lobster traps, the red schoolhouse, and the village people (31 of them living there all year round). It is a place for contemplation, wind blown hair, and new insights. It doesn’t matter what time of the day or even what the season, Peggy’s Cove is worth to visit and to linger.
