When my husband and I drove up the hill to Sunrise Point, the first thing we saw besides the stunning rock and ocean views was a pheasant strutting around in the boreal scrub in front of the cottage, we knew we were in a special place. Special it was, as the view from this vista was incredible of the Atlantic Ocean in front of us, the lighthouse and the cove on one side, the erratics behind us along with the greenest green bushes and grasses, and the huge, smooth rounded rocks on the other side for playing and sitting on all day. There were buses of people who came to see the lighthouse and the cove, but we felt far removed from them as we observed from "our" cottage, which was so cozy and well-equipped. We were at Peggy's Cove for our thirty-sixth anniversary. What a beautiful place to celebrate life. We did some excursions to Halifax to the Maritime Museum (the Titanic exhibit was definitely worth seeing-also had my first potine there on the wharf-yummy-pay the daily parking rate-you'll want to spend the whole day), Lunenberg-adorable, Hubbard's and the beach,and the SS Atlantic sight-so sad, but our favorite place to spend time was Peggy's Cove. One night, we made plans to go on an excursion the next day, but when we awoke, the fog was thick, it was cool, and we decided to spend the morning and into the late afternoon in the cottage playing board games, sitting in the adirondack chairs, and standing on "our" rock completely enveloped in the fog. The people of Peggy's Cove were delightful. We felt like old friends of the Beals and loved the oatmeal cakes in Beals Baliwick and the conversations we had there. Another delight was Mr. Crooks, whose boathouse is now open for people to see the life of a fisherman. He exuded Nova Scotian charm and character. Elaine, thank you so much for sharing your piece of heaven with us. What a treasure you have there!
