Photo: Surreal Peggys Cove Lighthouse Sunset Picture Nova Scotia

A surreal image of Peggy's Cove Lighthouse keeping watch over the moon and Peggy's Cove at sunset in St. Margarets Bay - located along the Lighthouse Route on Highway 333 in Nova Scotia; one of the busiest tourist areas in the province.

The lighthouse and the Lighthouse Trail at Peggy's Cove in St Margarets Bay in Nova Scotia is one of the busiest and most loved tourist attractions in the region. This lighthouse stands proud at the eastern entrance to St. Margarets Bay and naturally it is there to warn approaching ships of the rugged coastline surrounding it.

People who like to visit lighthouses will know this lighthouse by sight as it is one of the most photographed and famous lighthouses in the world. It is still operated by the Canadian Coast Guard and people are welcome to visit the area but they are warned that it is dangerous to be out on the rocky outcrop and some people over the years have even been swept away and drowned.

A small Canada Post department is now located on the lower level of the lighthouse that people can post letters from back to their family members back home. ... continue below the picture...

... A lighthouse has stood on this site since 1868, but the first one was a wooden structure. The current one was built in 1914 and is made of concrete. The light that shines brightly from it is a red light, but it has also been a white and a green one in the past.
