Exquisite works of nature take time … lots of time. Peggy’s Cove is located at the southwestern edge of Chebucto Peninsula. The village is bordered by St. Margarets Bay to the west and the Atlantic Ocean seen here in the south. This rugged coastline primarily consists of large granite rock. They were formed about 400 million years ago when tectonic shifts allowed lava to flow up from the sea. They were carved, scraped and smoothed during a glacier period about 200,000 years ago. Final polishing has occurred during millenniums of pounding waves and howling winds.
