Peggy's Cove is a tiny fishing village built on the windswept rocks around a little natural harbour.
On a point of land nearby is the famous red-and-white lighthouse.
They were painting the lighthouse when we were there, which made it look a little ... um ... weathered, but on the other hand I got to bring back a couple of pieces of the lighthouse as souvenirs.
Lunenburg is built on a hill so all the roads are steeply sloped and you get your exercise going anywhere in town.
Lunenburg was designated a UNESCO World Heritage site because it a wonderful surviving example of a planned British colonial settlement in North America. It was established in 1753 and many of the original clapboard buildings dating from the 18th century are still preserved.
Kate and I walked around town taking photos of the old houses many painted in bright colours with contrasting trim.
