This iconic Nova Scotia lighthouse is usually rendered in a long shot with stones and surf, but here's a different view, taken from directly below its rocky base. Built in 1914 and freshly repainted just before our visit, it lies some 30 miles southwest of Halifax and is a longtime favorite of tourists bearing cameras. By the way, Peggys Cove lost its possessive apostrophe about 1976, for obscure reasons.
