RV road trip through Nova Scotia – Day 2, part 1

RV road trip through Nova Scotia – Day 2, part 1

RV trip through Nova Scotia

From Peggy’s Cove to Lunenburg

Foggy Peggy's Cove

On the second day of our RV trip through Nova Scotia we drove along the stunning South Shore from the legendary Peggy’s Cove to Lunenburg, the UNESCO World heritage site.

Captured in the mists of “Haven”

After a rather short first night in our rented RV we all got up fairly early, so we were able to discover the Peggy’s Cove campsite all by ourselves. But here it was again: this incredible fog that veiled the surroundings into a mysterious repose. Since we had already arrived in this dense fog the night before we couldn’t really tell the size of this campground. Having campers emerging from the fog all of the sudden was strange and funny because we had no chance to see them until we were only a few meters apart. We did feel a bit like in the Sci-fi series “Haven”, where strange things, the “troubles”, happen on a daily basis. In some episodes the fictive town of “Haven” (actually Lunenburg) is shut away from the rest of the world by an ominous mist, and that is exactly what it looked like on our campground in Peggy’s Cove, Nova Scotia, on our first morning. Were we already deep within the “troubles”?

After a short walk to the waterfront and a small playground we had a delicious breakfast with bagles, cream cheese and jam plus our indispensable hot coffee. Mmmmhh. Then we got ready to move on, relaxed but eager to go to Peggy’s Cove Lighthouse. However, at first, we had to empty the black and grey water (since we had no idea when we would be able to do this again and we lacked experience on how often we would have to do this) and to disconnect the RV from the campground’s electricity. And off we went to Peggy’s Cove Lighthouse! The saying “The early bird catches the worm” proved to be true once again. Hail thee, you young kiddos, for throwing your sleep-deprived parents out of bed before dawn. For once.

Peggy’s Cove Lighthouse

This magical place, the signpost of Nova Scotia I’d say, the legendary lighthouse of Peggy’s Cove is one of the busiest tourist places in Nova Scotia, sitting on a granite outcrop. It’s one of the most photographed icons in Atlantic Canada, but to truly appreciate its captivating beauty you definitely have to go and see for yourself! But do go in the early mornings if you visit during summer.

Through small, curving roads we reached the conveniently large parking lot, and there it was, towering up in red and white on a rock above the blue sea. The ever persisting fog added to the mystery of this place. We were still almost all by ourselves, it wasn’t even 9 o’clock in the morning yet. Awed by the natural spectacle of the fog lifting and the sun coming out slowly we remained silent and somewhat grateful in this sacral area.
