HALLS HARBOUR NOVA SCOTIA
This is a painting of Halls Harbour, a tiny village fishing village on Nova Scotia’s Bay of Fundy coast. Halls Harbour has some of the highest tides in the World, the fishermen must take their boats out at high tide and then return on the next tide or they cannot enter the harbour.
Halls Harbour is reputedly named after Samuel Hall, an American privateer in the American Revolution who used the cove to raid settlements in the Annapolis Valley but was forced to flee and abandon his ship in the harbour. Legend holds that Hall left treasure behind, attracting treasure hunters who have left abandoned pits deep in the woods surrounding the harbour.
