3 reasons to visit Peggy’s Cove in the winter

We recently had a chance to spend a day, child-free, exploring the Halifax area, and since the Peggy’s Cove drive is one of life’s great pleasures, it was automatically on our list.

I’m not sure I’ve ever been to Peggy’s Cove in the winter, and I was surprised. Not only was it a) delightfully devoid of tourists, but b) it was actually pretty warm! Sure, that might have been because we’d been living in -25C back in Fredericton, so +6 was more than a 30 degree improvement, but since Peggy’s Cove is always frightfully cold in the summer, I wasn’t going to complain.

And the third reason to visit Peggy’s Cove this winter: it’s beautiful. (Of course, that’s true any time of year.)

I spent lots of time and took a ton of shots – almost all without any other tourists in them!
