"The view is from my work table window, of the Halls Harbour children leaving for school. We have two children in high school. I am often asked if we live here (Halls Harbour) in the winter. The answer is as you see in this image. The children of Nova Scotia leave the rugged beauty of the coast at daybreak to travel to consolidated schools. The schools are located inland in the more urban settings. The children of Maritime Canada, however, bond with the marine environment; the deep yellow bus facilitates their leaving and return." - Joyce Martin
