A time gone by, in the rural fishing villages throughout Nova Scotia you can find evidence of the once booming fishing industry that now has died down due to dwinding fish stocks.

For some past fishermen, this is the only fishing boat they have left. Prospect is now a quiet fishing village with an old-time charm with salt box houses and fishing shacks dotting the landscape.

    I love following your pictures – gives me something to dream over as I am sitting at mey desk in the office. I stopped and talked to you in for a few moments Sunday afternoon in the parking lot of the Seabright Legion on my way down to Peggy’s Cove – it was wonderful to have a chance to tell you how much I am enjoying the website.

    Safe travels and lots of adventure!
