These Legion boys do puzzles each and everyday. “There’s not much to do when in Liverpool, this keeps us busy and out of trouble,” they explain. A puzzle is completed everyday for four days and then a new one is started. This tradtion has been going on at the Legion for two years.

John Brown is still very active on the farm; keeping busy chopping wood for the winter months. John turns 79 years young next month.

This Is Summerview, Nova Scotia

An amazing sandy beach awaits you… not a pebble could be found on this mile- long beach. Foot traffic was very light with a person arriving every half an hour. That will most likely change with tourism season starting next month.

This Is Shelburn, Nova Scotia

The Miss Emily fishing boat returns after a 12 hour day of feeding Atlantic Salmon at a salmon farm 50 kms out in the ocean.

Fishermen walk to their vehicles after working a 12 hour day,and  they’ll be back tomorrow morning a 6:30am to do it all over again. With few jobs in the area, these men have little choice but to work the summer away.

    Not sure what your guys are looking to see but you blew through here so fast you missed Dirk Vanloon’s Environmental Study Facility.
    You missed a lot of history in Port Mouton including the school that use to house 300 kids. Now there are only 22 in the area. More about it on the web site.
    You comment on the beaches getting busy in a month. NOT down here 20 people on a Summerville beach is a busy day 🙂
    Sorry we missed ya

    Interesting set of pictures of life in your area. Just been browsing the web and came across your site. Gives a good impression of life in Nova Scotia I think (from what I can judge, anyway).
    Regards from Sydney, Australia
