In our quest to visit every lighthouse on our route, we made a slight detour during our drive from Halifax to Peggy’s Cove to see the Terence Bay Lighthouse. On the way, we came across a memorial to the shipwreck of the SS Atlantic. It was such a peaceful spot, especially in the fog.
Erica read up about the shipwreck of the steamship that happened in 1873. Out of 950 people on board, more than half of them perished. However, the number would have been much higher if it hadn’t been for the courageous efforts of the people near Terence Bay.
We could barely make out the lighthouse across the harbor in the dense fog.
We drove closer to the lighthouse, but it still took some scrambling over rocks and through water to reach it. It was worth it.
Such a perfect little spot, especially on a foggy morning.
