The morning broke on a beautiful sunny day so we Olivia and I returned to the Wave once again while Holly slept in. Olivia was outgrowing her clothes quite quickly so after lunch in Rover we went to a local mall to buy some new pants for her. That pretty much took up our entire day and we went to the local Walmart for the night.
It was time for us to move on the next day and we drove down to Peggy’s Cove, arriving just in time for sunset. Peggy’s Cove is a tiny very picturesque seaside town with a lovely little lighthouse and we found some lovely parking in Tourist Information Center’s large parking lot. It was really nice, sitting on the rocks and enjoying the beautiful sunset. Being a very small town of only a few dozen houses, once it got dark there really wasn’t anything to do so we just returned to Rover for the night.
The next morning we returned to the lighthouse to more leisurely enjoy the views of the lighthouse, rocks and ocean. Peggy’s Cove really is a very pretty isolated, little seaside town in the day. It is just like the ones usually shown in horror movies before night falls and the towns ancient, deep, dark secret is revealed and the fog rolls in or the birds attack or the ghost ship sails arrives or the vampires attack or the malevolent magic awakens or the witches get exposed, or… well you get the idea.
It was a truly lovely, sunny day though and we stopped at Tom’s Lobster Shack where we got a classic lobster roll. It was really delicious with a soft bun stuffed full of lobster. If it didn’t cost over CAD$20 I would have happily eaten two or three of them.
After a quick lunch we drove to the Ovens Natural Park where we hiked a spectacular trail along the cliffs above the sea and explored some natural sea caves or “Ovens”. The rocks are very sharp and flaky resulting in a very jagged shoreline and some deep sea caves. After that we found a Walmart to spend the night.
