Because some of you have visited Nova Scotia and made your way to Peggy's Cove Lighthouse I want to share this ...which I find disturbing. Some may say it is progress. HA ! I call it foolish. Anyway, take a look if you wish.
Just a bit of news on the potential ruination of Peggy's Cove.
The government in their "wisdom" are planning a viewing platform to keep visitors safe.
This article tells some of the story: https://www.halifaxtoday.ca/local-news/picturesque-lighthouse-at-nova-scotias-peggys-cove-to-get-viewing-platform-3265536
It might make walking a bit easier but it won't keep people safe .... because you can't legislate intelligence from stupidity. Anyway, since this news broke, there is mounting opposition to the spending of $3.1 million on something that will destroy the natural beauty of the place.
This platform will be built such that the road way we traveled will be removed and the structure will extend out over the rock towards the water towards the right of the road's present location.
A Face book group was begun last night by some who are greatly bothered by this development.
Here is the link in case you wish to join and at least it gives you some info on what they are planning. I'm not sure if we will go for the protest walk this weekend (we usually don't take part in these kind of things) but this is a significant annoyance. There are greater problems that could use $3.1M and
wouldn't ruin an iconic landmark.
