Without Proof Photo Album

I’ve shared photos before of things my characters might have seen in Secrets and Lies, and today I have a few images from Without Proof. If you’ve read the novel, you’ll know that Amy’s estranged father wants to be part of her life, but there’s a lot of hurt for her to get past first. When he visits Nova Scotia, once she agrees to meet him, they spend part of a day prowling some of the local tourist sites to avoid the awkwardness of sitting and making conversation.

A natural spot for them to visit is Peggy’s Cove, which is not too far from where Amy lives and which is the home of perhaps the most photographed lighthouse in Canada. Here’s a brief tour:

Wooden bench on the rocks at Peggy's Cove

Amy and Neal may have sat on this bench when they shared a brief heart-to-heart.

View from the bench: plenty of ocean, with the rock-lined edge of a roadway in the foreground.

Looking straight ahead, this is what they might have seen, if the wind was calm that day.

The iconic Peggy's Cove lighthouse, surrounded by tourists.

Looking to the left, they’d have seen the iconic lighthouse, surrounded by tourists. Yes, this whole area is essentially a collection of huge rocks with a few plants growing wherever they can.

Peggy's Cove Fisherman's Monument, carved by William E. deGarthe

Amy pointed out the Fisherman’s Monument to Neal. The monument was carved by William E. deGarthe, and if you click the image, the link will take you to more information. As I said, the rocks are everywhere. So too are persistent plants. In the lower right-hand corner are wild rose bushes, and you can see grass and a few trees as well.

Trivia point: the background image of my website is a huge chunk of Peggy’s Cove granite with a tenacious wild rose blooming in a crack. Here’s a smaller version of the image.

If you walked up to the restaurant and out onto the point, you’d see a greater expanse of boulders that project like hills into the sea. People love to clamber across the rocks, although, tragically, some venture onto the slippery black rocks where the water comes, and get swept into the ocean. I didn’t include that part of the locale in our photo tour, nor the restaurant and shops, because how many pictures do you really want to look at? And I didn’t include a shot of the gourmet ice cream sold on-site, because that would have just been cruel. 🙂

If you haven’t read the novel and want to know more (it’s Christian romantic suspense), check out the Without Proof book page.
