Peggys Cove, Nova Scotia

This historic and picturesque fishing village may cause your film stock to hit unprecedented low levels.

This historic and picturesque fishing village may cause your film stock to hit unprecedented low levels. The village itself is home to only about 50 residents, and development is extremely restricted. I’ve heard stories that you cannot buy property there, it must be willed to you (I’m not sure if this is completely accurate). The reason that people keep coming to visit here, as far as I can tell, is that every way you turn you just want to either take a picture or stand with your mouth hanging open in awe of the beauty and/or magnificence and/or quaintness of whatever you see.

The surroundings here are at the same time majestic and powerful, as well as simple and rustic. A granite outcropping permeates the geography, with the iconic Peggys Point Lighthouse perched on the barren rock amid the hidden danger of unpredictably crashing waves. I quiet inlet is filled with fishing shacks that apparently haven’t changed in a hundred years. Randomly placed houses and public buildings that have refused to follow an orderly pattern of streets, have agreed to be painted in a selection of primary colors. The main industry here now seems to be a photo-opportunity combination of tourism and lobster fishing. I have heard and read that this is one of the most photographed locations in Canada, and after my last visit that doesn’t surprise me at all.

    The location is fantastic but on the other hand also reminds me for several Horror movies like The Fog and the Tooth Fairy....hmmm...probably too much TV .)
