PEGGY'S COVE, Nova Scotia – Nova Scotia, one of Canada's four "Maritime" provinces, is the country's second smallest province. Yet it contains an amazing 7,500 miles of coastline. Peggy's Cove is typical of an old Maritime fishing village. It's located a short drive west of the provincial capital of Halifax on the Atlantic Ocean coast. Lobster traps and well-traveled boats like the Harbour Mist lay in wait in the harbor on a foggy morning in late May.
AUTHOR'S NOTE: Remember blogspot.com? Just one of many fun tech upstarts that would later be bought out (and rendered mostly irrelevant) by GooGooFaceTwit and their ilk. For awhile, blogging was The Next Big Thing, and like many other creatively-minded people with too much time on their hands, I tried it for awhile. I was collecting a lot of frequent flyer miles for work at the time, and one of my short-lived blogging attempts was an "online travel photo journal" called Nomad's Gallery. This post was originally published on June 1, 2007, and is now part of my Shots from the Road collection. -Starling
