From Travel Educators Sandra Phinney and Bob Fisher
There is a keen sense of watchfulness in Atlantic Canada; not a menacing vigilance by any means, but instead a mindfulness of how time, landscape, and history have shaped the expressive human culture of this very traveller-friendly region.
Four provinces comprise what is known as Atlantic Canada: Newfoundand and Labrador; Nova Scotia; Prince Edward Island; and New Brunswick. And although each has its own distinct character and abundant sites, attractions, and community-based cultures, what all four have in common is a maritime sensibility and the Atlantic Ocean.
In a recent issue of Dreamscapes magazine, Sandra Phinney and Bob Fisher both published stories about specific areas within the region; and about the universal lessons that Atlantic Canada embodies.
In her article, Sandra focuses on Acadian country in Nova Scotia, and its culture and history; the well-known story as told by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow in his epic poem Evangeline.
In his article, Bob gives an overview of the geological context and history of western Newfoundland, especially Gros Morne, “the most beautiful fjord in the world.”
