a small miracle

okay so what makes this simple lighthouse photo
a miracle?
a sunny saturday at peggy's cove means loads and loads 
of tourists
it was amazing that i managed to get this shot without any people in it.
it pays to shoot low and have all the rocks in the way!!

see what i mean?  loads of tourists!

i managed to get one of matt and emily without any people in it
took a little bit of patience and a hearty smile and laugh to get everyone
to stop walking by for a few minutes!!
but it was worth it!

this is our favorite little 'ledge'
when the kids were small it was a precarious climb to this
but today it was a piece of cake
but we enjoy it because no one is ever there
it is quiet and the view of the sea is so lovely.

we really enjoyed ourselves
climbing and jumping on the rocks,
eating icecream
finding little sea side trails and shops
and of course taking lots of photos.

i took over a hundred today so thought
i would show you a few in the blog....

why not eh?
what is a trip to the sea without a rusty old chain, a lobster trap,
lichen covered bedrock
and a lovely sea breeze.

the best part?
i was a GIANT for the day!
isn't emily clever to take this photo?
must be in her genes.


  1. Love the pictures...especially the last one! Looks like a wonderful day.

  2. Hey, Deb, reminded me so much of our time at Peggy's Cove a couple of years ago. Apparently nice sunny days there are rare as well. Loved it there, thanks for bringing back good memories.

  3. i could have pushed that lighthouse over if i wanted to..but good thing i am a friendly giant!
