Photographer's Note

Peggy's Cove has to be one of the most photographed places in the Maritimes, but most people concentrate on the Lighthouse.

The Lighthouse isn't the only photogenic part of the village though, there are many other picturesque gems waiting just along the road :)

In this case I spotted the Old Red Schoolhouse on the hill, and then noticed the juxtaposition of colour surrounding it and I knew I'd found my shot!

The Old Red Schoolhouse is an original one-room school house. It was built in the 1830's and had students up until the 1950's - now it's used as a theatre and gallery.

The title of the picture comes from an educational TV series which ran during the 1970's and 1980's, more on that here if you're interested.
