Halifax Peggy's Cove Excursion Reviews
Although the weather was inclement during our tour, our tour operator, Liz, made the trip very enjoyable with her stories about Halifax. Especially noteworthy were the roles Halifax played during the 9/11 disaster when flights arriving back to the U.S. were diverted to Halifax when the airspace over the U.S. was shut down. Also, Halifax was involved with the Titanic disaster by retreiving bodies at sea and burying those victims who could not be identified. Another trajedy was the airline crash off the coast of Halifax that left all passengers and crew dead. Peggy's Cove is a beautiful little fishing village with a picturesque lighthouse sitting on a stone outcropping. Even the terrible weather could not deter us from venturing out and taking photos. Liz also provided us a very humorous rendition of the mating ritual of lobsters. Who knew?
