Travel Tuesday: Peggys Cove, Nova Scotia, Canada

According to legend, Peggys Cove was named after the only survivor of a schooner that ran aground and sank in 1800... a woman named Margaret. Local folk called her "Peggy" and her home came to be known as Peggys Cove. The original lighthouse was built in 1868.  This is an amazing  place to visit and experience.  (The official spelling is without the apostrophe.)
