Peggy, Oh Peggy

It took us 5-long years to make our plan to travel to the Canadian Maritimes a reality. We've been wanting to see the Peggys Cove for the longest time. We've seen it many times in pictures and videos only and read about it a lot. But like they say - “Better to see something once than hear about it a thousand times.” I've imagined about you only in my dreams. Finally, Peggy we've met!  We had to visit Peggy twice, one in the morning and finally during sunset. We never regretted as it was only during sunset did we see the real grandeur of Peggys Cove.

Cabot Trail Experience

"Explore the Cabot Trail! Come for the drive, savour the journey." 
That's the shoutout to entice tourists, bikers, road trippers, nature lovers and adventurers alike. The  Cabot Trail is considered one of the world's most scenic destinations, with stunning ocean vistas, old-growth forests, prehistoric rock scarred by glaciers, and the mysterious Cape Breton Highlands. From experience, I would highly endorse it.
