Indian Harbor, Nova Scotia (Peggy’s Cove)

I stayed at King Neptune Campground in Indian Harbor, Nova Scotia August 23 – 29.  The RV park was less than 10 minutes from Peggy’s Cove, so I visited that area several times.  The first time I went it was very crowded and I didn’t spend too much time there.


I went back a few more times in the early morning and late afternoon and enjoyed it much more.


The RV park I stayed at was on the water.  The first spot I had I could see the cove.

I watched 2 gulls fighting over some lobster.  Even the birds eat well around here!


After my first day, I changed sites so I could see more of the ocean.  Next to me was a Sun Deck RVs by Airstream.  This RV has a deck on the roof of the RV. They only made 20 – 30 of these RVs.

While there I biked part of the Rails to Trails St Margaret’s Bay Trail twice.


I drove into Halifax a couple of times and on one trip, I visited the Fairview Lawn Cemetery.  This cemetery is known for having some of the Titanic victims buried here.


The Titanic plot is in the shape of a ship and contains many graves, some known only by a number and some identified. The smaller tombstones were bought by the cruise line, White Star Line.

The grave above was originally an unknown child, but much later identified.

The grave below had many visitors in 1997 after the movie Titanic came out.


But Jack Dawson from the movie is a fictional character.  The J. Dawson above is a Joseph Dawson and was part of the crew.  James Cameron, the movie director, claimed he had no idea there was a Dawson on the ship.

From Indian Harbor I headed north to Parkers Cove, Nova Scotia.
