Storyline

In this Traveltalk look at Canada's province of Nova Scotia, we visit several coastal communities. The first stop is Lunenburg, where deep sea fishing and shipbuilding are the main industries. Other stops include Blue Rocks, where lobstering is an important source of income, and Peggy's Cove, known for its artist community. Here we meet artist Earl Bailly, who contracted polio at the age of 3 and learned to paint by holding the brush between his teeth. Written by David Glagovsky <dglagovsky@prodigy.net>

On the Shores of Nova Scotia (1947)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

TravelTalks entry takes us to Lunenburg where we learn a whole lot about fishing. We see the various waters off of Nova Scotia and then we learn their history, which includes some of the very best deep sea fishing around. We learn about a 800-lb tuna that was caught there and hear that this isn't such a rare thing. We also get to see the various types of boats, traps used to capture lobster and this episode also takes a look at handicapped folks and how they overcome their disabilities. We meet a one-armed fisherman as well as a painter who has no arms. Both stories are very interesting and they're certainly the highlight of this entry. Everything dealing with the fishing was also interesting but it's hard to out do a man being able to paint great pictures with his mouth.
