Situated on a granite outcrop in Nova Scotia, you will find Peggy’s Cove Lighthouse. It is one of the most photographed and recognizable lighthouses in the world! This concrete and steel tower, which was built in 1915 and measures 49 feet tall, is still operational. It replaced the original wooden tower built in 1868. The lighthouse marks the eastern entrance to St. Margaret’s Bay

It was actually number six on my 2016 Lighthouse Touring list. Unfortunately, I still haven’t been able to visit it. Hopefully, I’ll find some time before
