By early evening as the last of the tourists leave Peggy's Cove, the bright green light atop the octagonal tower of the lighthouse begins it's nightly vigil, sometimes under the light of a full moon.
The current lighthouse at Peggy's Cove, which sits on the smooth wave-worn granite shores at the entrance to St Margarets Bay, has been keeping watch over this stretch of coastline since 1914 when it replaced the original lighthouse which dated from 1868. The Peggy's Cove Lighthouse was automated in 1958.
