The Lighthouse in Winter
While Peggy’s Cove is an extremely popular summer destination for visitors, it is beautiful, though somewhat dangerous to explore, in the wintertime. The white with red trim lighthouse sits out on a granite outcrop at Peggys Point, which, in the winter, is usually covered with ice and snow making the trek up to the lighthouse a slippery and hazardous one. The village of Peggy’s Cove is usually quiet in the winter, as there are few tourists around. In addition, the winter is not the optimal time of year for fishing, particularly lobster, which is how the majority of the locals make their living.
