Since 1915, the current tower, home to the lighthouse at Peggy's Cove in St. Margaret's Bay in Nova Scotia, has watched over the rugged coastline where the Atlantic Ocean shows its fury. On this quiet day, the waves gently lap against the rocks as the sunset lighting glistens off the surface of the water.
A wooden tower placed on the smooth granite rocks at this point in 1868 was built atop the lightkeeper's residence but the current lighthouse replaced it, 50 feet west from the original location.
