National Geographic : 1966 May
The Province of Nova Scotia is all but surrounded by salt water. And you are never more than 35 miles from the sight and sound of the sea. Nova Scotia's seascape attracts artists, photographers, naturalists and beachcombers. The International Tuna Cup Match is held in Nova Scotia. Salt-water sports fishing is a specialty; fully-equipped boats may be chartered for $30 to $75 a day. Fish for tuna, or for swordfish, pollock and mackerel. Nova Scotians are a seafaring folk. On a summer's day, you will find the harbours alive with sail. The famous schooner Bluenose was built here, and Nova Scotian shipyards continue to build boats and ships of all sizes with traditional skill and craftsmanship. Like fish to water, youngsters take to Nova Scotia. Resort area beaches are sunny and safe and slope gently to the sea. Clam digging, shore cookouts and sand castle con struction are favorite pastimes. Nova Scotia summers have a special appeal to families. Not all Nova Scotia beaches are uncrowded, but along the 4,600 miles of coastline, in quiet bays and sheltered coves, there are countless strands of sand, and opportunity to spend a day by the sea, by yourselves.
