This book is a photo journey of the typical daily
experiences of lobster fishers.
I had the opportunity in 2014 to accompany my son
Captain Anthony Meuse, and his crew members Luc Babin and Réjean McCauley on
one of their lobster fishing trips on Baie Sainte-Marie, Nova Scotia.
I was very impressed with how Anthony and his crew
worked as a well-organized team to accomplish success in an extremely
professional and intelligent manner. These hard working men are extremely
skilled and knowledgeable in the art of lobster fishing. I was surprised to
learn about the amount of scientific technology and information that goes along
with their ability to work long hours, often in dangerous weather conditions. I
was fortunate that on the day I joined them, the bay was relatively calm and
the temperature was warm, unlike some days when the water is extremely rough
and temperatures fall well below zero degrees Celsius. Although I did
participate in some of the work, my day was spent more like a tourist enjoying
many moments of beautiful scenery.
I have experienced many moments of joyful
inspiration throughout my life…moments brought about through practices such as
meditation, prayer, visualization, listening to others, and just everyday lifeexperiences.
None of thesewere any morepowerful
and insightful than spending a day on Baie Sainte-Marie fishing with Anthony, Luc
and Réjean! It was truly an experience of oneness with Nature.
