Peggy’s Cove, Nova Scotia

June 2013:  We were in Halifax for the RAIC Conference and managed to get away for a day to explore.  Peggy’s Cove, a small rural community located on the eastern shore of St. Margarets Bay, Nova Scotia was our destination.  The village was formally founded in 1811, when the Province of Nova Scotia issued a land grant of more than 800 acres to six families.  The settlers relied on fishing, but also farmed the surrounding areas.  In the early 1900 the population peaked at about 300 people.  The community supports a schoolhouse, church, general store, lobster cannery and boats of all sizes.

With improved roads, tourists flock to the area to photograph and paint the active fishing village.  I add my postcard to the numerous paintings, and photographs of the area.
