DGJ_8159 - The hiding lighthouse

PLEASE, no multi invitations in your comments. DO NOT FEEL YOU HAVE TO COMMENT.Thanks.


Another shot just before the sunset at Peggy's Cove. The top of the lighthouse is between the two buildings. I wish the scene was a little less crowded, but I liked the light.


According to legend, Peggy's Cove was named after the only survivor of a schooner that ran aground and sank in 1800... a woman named Margaret. Local folk called her "Peggy" and her home came to be known as Peggy's Cove. The original lighthouse was built in 1868.
