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 life experiences. None of these were any more powerful 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.
