Peggy’s Cove

A quaint fishing village in Halifax, Nova Scotia had all the right picture-perfect qualities—plus daisies.

During a quick mid-October visit to Peggy’s Point Lighthouse, the sun was out for only a few moments. Even off-season, the picturesque cove was overrun with fellow travelers, so I ventured away from the crowds and explored the rocky shoreline and other areas. Pretty clouds turned out to be storm clouds and when the wind began to blow, serious snowfall rolled in and quickly covered the walks. We were prepared with winter gear, and I had my fingerless gloves to work my camera with—too bad for those visitors who shivered in sandals and light coats. Still, the first snow of the season is always a reason to rejoice.

I came across a hillside of daisies basking in the sun. The top of the field was home to a series of unoccupied houses, an idle truck, a few overturned wheelbarrows. It felt very typical of a simple East Coast style that someone chose to paint in sweet shades of reds and yellows. For a few minutes it was summer again—and then the snow blew into my face and it was time to leave.
